WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING
“ From 50-year-old vines growing in stony, sandy soils, the 2019 Régnié Vallières bursts with aromas of cherries, raspberries and blackberries, complemented by subtle hints of potpourri and smoked meats. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping, it's velvety and succulent, with an ample core of beautifully pure fruit that's girdled by melting tannins and lively acids. This has turned out especially well this year.” 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.
