The 2009 vintage of this Régnié from the Maison des Bulliats does not disappoint. Packed with fruit it is absolutely classic traditional medium weight Cru Beaujolais - somewhere between a Brouily and a Morgon in style.

More about this wine
A deep ruby red colour with hints of violet and a wonderful nose of pepper, dark fruit, rubbed bramble leaf and earth. On the palate it is medium bodied, fruity and sappy, with lots of dark crunchy brambly fruit, spice and a hint of liquorice. The finish is long and dry, again with dark brambly fruit and a hint of gamey undergrowth. It is excellent with hams, pork, other meat dishes and cheeses. Best served cool at 14-15°C.
Ben says (January 2017): Wow! The tasting notes above are accurate but do not in any way describe how fantastic this wine is. It is utterly beautiful in a way that no wine has a right to be. How can we have so much available? Get it now before I buy it all.

Unbelievable wine for an unbelievable price. I never used to take Beaujolais too seriously in the past, assuming it was all light reds with little complexity. That was until I tasted this wine. Full of bramble and blueberry laced with violet, this wine is both floral and fruity with a depth not often achieved with Gamay. The few bottles I brought home didn't last long.
