I bought this wine from the London France Show back in January.I met and spoke with the owners,Fred and Helen Lockwood,a pair of retired teachers,who bought a wine estate in Beaujolais as a retirement project,and then sampled the wine before buying a bottle.Regnie is one of the Grand Cru Beaujolais and Fred was keen to point out that this means better quality than Beaujolais Nouveau.Regnie is named after the Roman governor Reginus who took a great interest in the vines of this area and like all Beaujolais is made from the Gamay grape.I drank my bottle last night and I have to say that I liked it.There is fruit there but it is a dry and restrtained kind of fruit and there is a hint of spice at the end.It is quite different from the Chiroubles and the Morgons I had and reviwed for Snooth last year.Perhaps it is the terroir and the Maison des Bulliat's granite and sandy soil.Robert Parker also liked it and gave the 2008/2009 vintage 88-89 points and the well known British wine writer Jancis Robinson gave the 2010 a very good write up.
