  • Several decades of determined campaigning by the local growers finally bore fruit in 1988 when Régnié was made the tenth 'Cru' growth of Beaujolais. The appellation covers 1500 acres of Gamay vines and it shares the same microclimate and characteristic granite subsoil as its immediate neighbours of Morgon to the north and Brouilly to the south. Maison Louis Latour selects only the highest quality fruit which have been grown on the best located sites which display the unique flavours of the individual Cru.

Wine tasting
  • Tasting Note
    The Régnié "La Roche" 2011 has an intense garnet colour. It is complex on the nose with floral notes, accompanied by aromas of cherries with a gamey hint. It is wonderfully fresh and round in the mouth with aromas of blackcurrants and cloves.
