Régnié is the youngest of the Beaujolais crus! In fact, it wasn’t until 1988 that this appellation was officially recognised. But the newcomer in the family has got a lot to offer. Its favourable geographical location, in between its two brothers, Brouilly and Morgon, produces wines of a unique fruitiness.
The colour in the glass is a deep ruby red. The nose bursts forwards with aromas of wild strawberries, cherries and redcurrants. The palate has well balanced acidity, gentle tannins and a hint of minerality. The flavours are of red summer fruits with an enticing spicy note. The finish is very long.
This makes a wonderful picnic wine, or for something more formal, pair with seafood paella.
