Manual harvest

Selective sorting
of the harvested grapes before vatting on a sorting table, after thinning or ‘green harvest’ if necessary.

Made with grapes from the oldest vines on our estate, one plot particularly is over 80 years old, using traditional Beaujolais methods, where the bunches are kept whole throughout vatting; Vatting using gravity, de-vatting with a conveyor belt, pneumatic pressing. Maturing in cement vats before bottling.

In this way we craft a deep ruby hued aromatic wine with tannins that are supple and blend in beautifully.

Characteristic of Régnié’s terroir, this cuvée may be enjoyed from its youth to get the most of its red fruit aromas. After 4 to 5 years cellaring however, these evolve to jammy and even leather notes. To really get the most of this cuvée after several years cellaring, we advise you to decant it a quarter of an hour before serving.

This wine reaches its peak after 3 to 4 years.

This Régnié is the perfect partner to :

- A platter of delicatessen meats

- Andouillette

- White meat, as it comes or in a cream sauce

- Some fish (e.g. red mullet filet)

- Creamy cheese
