91pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Aromas of cherries, raspberries, fresh herbs and licorice introduce the 2018 Régnié, a medium to full-bodied, satiny and elegant wine that's open-knit and charming, with melting tannins and succulent acids. It spent six months in used wooden barrels. It's only 12.5% alcohol even in this ripe vintage.

90pts Wine Spectator

Light-bodied and tangy, featuring raspberry and red currant notes, edged with white pepper, herb and orange tea details. Light tannins frame the mineral-driven finish. Distinct in style. Drink now through 2022.

Winemaker Notes

At first, notes of supple, juicy fruit evoke the sandy layer of topsoil into which these Gamay vines—many of them a century old—sink their roots. Then a granite kick, full of gritty spice, clutches the palate with gusto, conjuring the stony bedrock beneath. After all, the vineyards of Régnié sit high on a slope between Brouilly and Morgon, so you can expect the perfume and brightness of the former along with a hint of the mineral-driven structure typical of the latter. And don't forget the house style—Breton’s wines are designed to be drunk with reckless abandon, and this is no exception.
