Régnié, one of the 10 Crus of Beaujolais, is known for producing more elegantly toned wines "combining the grace and perfume of nearby Brouilly with the complexity and flesh of Morgon" according to North Berkeley Imports. We couldn't agree more and feel like that's a perfect way to describe this wonderful 2016 example. This 100% Gamay was fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks for five months. Vibrant, almost crunchy cherry aromas waft from the bouquet along with pretty violet, floral and white pepper aromas on the nose. The lighter-bodied palate continues with flavors of cherry skin, blueberry and wild red berry before ending harmoniously on the silky yet structured finish. This is a Beaujolais of good focus with just enough (and not too much) flesh and fruit to honor its terroir and make for a very pleasing, graceful, easy to appreciate wine.
