Appellation

Regnie is a wine appellation in the Beaujolais region of France and is one of the most recent to gain Cru status. Only Gamay is permitted here unlike other cru Beaujolais appellations that can include Pinot Noir. Elevated in 1988, Régnié stylistically brings together the fresh fruit of Brouilly with a bit of the body and structure of Morgon. It’s supple but lively, with bright raspberry flavors and often a spicy note that makes it distinctive.

Estate

Located in the heart of Brouilly since 1888, Henry Fessy is family company specializing in the production of Beaujolais Crus. The domaine covers almost 70 hectares and includes vineyards in the appellations of Brouilly, Côte de Brouilly, Chénas, Fleurie, Juliénas, Morgon, Moulin-à-Vent, Régnié, Saint Amour, Beaujolais-Villages, Beaujolais and Beaujolais Blanc. The vines are an average of 50 years old and are trained in the traditional manner en Gobelet, which are individual low bush vines. The domaine's vineyards are managed with sensitivity towards the environment with intervention only taking place when it is necessary and beneficial. This philosophy allows them to produce characterful wines which express a true sense of place and origin.

Food pairing

Pair this wine with white meats, grilled entrecote, barbequed ribs, appetizers and cheese.
