More about this wine

Régnié is probably the lightest of the Beaujolais Crus but that should not be taken as a negative. On the contrary, these wines are often very refined, complex and beautifully flavoured.

This 2011 from Domaine de Colonat is superb and everything you would wish for in a Beaujolais Cru and, more specifically, one from Régnié.

It has a lovely clarity, lighter than most Pinot Noir, with a twinkling ruby in the glass. On the nose there is plenty of cherry and other red berries with eastern spices coming through. In the mouth there is a fair amount of attack although the tannins are quite light. The earthiness of Gamay is there in spades (pardon the deliberate pun!) with the fruit becoming more stewed than fresh as the maturity increases.

Although I would drink this immediately, it will last for a few more years.
