This fabulous Beaujolais-Villages made near Regnié is a classic ‘Vin Nature’ or natural wine, grown with no chemicals. A result of the excellent winemaking skills of Gregory Barbet and Frederic Maignet, this red is made only with natural yeast, and no additives nor added sulphites are used to create a generous balance of fruit and minerality. A fruity pure and singing wine, with a charming nose of floral violets and peonies and red berry fruit, with beautiful soft tannins. Discard your previous notions of Beaujolais, this natural wine is a revelation!

Gamay is Beaujolais – few are the wine regions whose identities are so tied up with their grapes. 99% of the Beaujolais vineyard area – a fifth of all France‘s – is planted with the grape. Here it reaches the pinnacle of its reputation as a light bodied, intensely fruity, racily acid wine often released quickly and intended for early, preferably summertime, drinking. It is bush-trained in order to keep its buoyant growth in check and often vinified by carbonic maceration. Some producers in the more distinguished villages vinify traditionally to give wines of greater structure and more restrained fruit. Gamay is also grown throughout Eastern Europe, the Loire Valley, Savoie, Italy and Switzerland.
