Estate Notes

Lagneau's Regnie Vieilles Vignes 2013 is a great Beaujolais style - full of fruit and character of the soil.

Lagneau is the pre-eminent producer of fine quality Régnié – a serious Beaujolais style, with concentrated redcurrant, raspberry fruits and underlying minerality. The Régnié vines have an average age of 55 years, giving low yields of well concentrated and balanced fruit – a truly gastronomic expression of the Gamay grape to accompany red meats and light game, but supple and enticing enough to enjoy on its own.

Gérard and Jeannine Lagneau are a wonderful welcoming couple – with Jeannine’s youthful, light-hearted manner offset by the more reserved and serious Gérard, who no doubt saves his energy for his six o’clock starts in the vineyard. And they do say that wines reflect the winemaker!

Reviews

Elegant fresh cherry, plum, floral notes and kirsch with refined spice, liquorice and warm granite base. Delightful fresh balance with fine spread and depth of fruit; elegant development with fine purity and good aromatic finish.
