WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING
“Notes of cherries, raspberries, licorice, and woodsmoke introduce the 2018 Régnié Vallières, a medium to full-bodied, velvety and layered wine with a rich core of fleshy fruit, fine tannins, and succulent acids. It's a charming, gourmand wine from sand and granite soils.” William Kelley, Wine Advocate
Jean-Marc Burgaud is based in Villie-Morgon, in the heart of the most celebrated of the crus. He began working here in 1989 when he had a hectare each in Beaujolais Villages, Regine, and Morgon. Now he's got 17.5 hectares, with 4.5 ha in Beaujolais Villages, a hectare in Regnie, and the rest in Morgon, including a sizeable 8 hectares of Côte du Py.
Burgaud’s wines are quite structured and yet they avoid being overpowering or too extracted. He works in quite a reductive way which sets up the wines nicely for some ageing.
