Crushed & Cured

Domaine Lagneau, Regnie, Vieilles Vignes, Cuvee Gerard, 2021


Régnié is arguably the least known of all the Beaujolais Crus; it was the last to be given appellation status in 1988. But from vineyards across steep, granitic hills just to the west of Morgon, the wines are properly dense and textured - especially from the Lagneau's ancient vines, which are mainly 60 or 100 years old.

Gérard is the father chez Lagneau. As ever, this is terrific, with a depth of colour and intensity of bramble and black cherry flavours rarely seen in Beaujolais at this price.
