REGNAUGOT RED MIXED 6 PACK
What do you know about the Maranges?
If you are just discovering this Burgundy appellation, here's a head's-up.
Elden Selections' favorite winemaker is the Domaine Bernard and Florian Regnaudot
We have been working with the Domaine Regnaudot for years and one thing they have taught us is that Great wine comes from meticulous vineyard work.
This is how small-production winemakers in lesser-known appellations
Become hidden gems and eventually stars.
Long winter preparation is not the most glamorous part of winemaking, but it is essential.
And literally nipping the yields in the bud come springtime is also critical.
At the height of the growing season, their vines look like textbook versions of ‘cordon de royat’ pruning:
Perfectly aligned grapes, evenly spaced, with just enough leaf cover to protect the fruit.
As a result, the quality is there.
Wait until you taste how that hard work pays off !
Domaine Regnaudot Red Mixed Case includes 2 bottles of each:
Domaine Regnaudot Maranges 1er Cru 'Clos des Loyeres' 2020
This much-awarded wine, from an appellation you have probably never heard of, is the standard-bearer for the Maranges. When we first arrived in Burgundy, neighboring Santenay was considered rustic and undrinkable. All that has changed. And now it’s the turn of Maranges to come into the fold. Producers like the Regnaudots have been making it happen for a decade now. This premier cru ‘Clos des Loyeres’ is black cherry in color and black cherry in flavor, which is considered typical of the vineyard. It’s a gutsy wine, full-bodied, round and balanced. There’s a touch of cocoa on that fruit that is persistent right through to the finish. A classy example of what Maranges can be. You have to try this.
Domaine Regnaudot Maranges Les Saugeot 2019
Here’s a wine with character. The color is bright and garnet red. Intense, wild and fruity, with those Burgundian notes of damp forest floor. The attack is sappy and aromatic with good structure. A little stocky in its youth, it will round out with maturity
Domaine Regnaudot Hautes Cotes de Beaune 2019
Dark red with fresh red fruit, firm and dense with good acidity, early notes of candied fruit. Young and exuberant. Drink it now, or hold it to see what the secondary aromas do to a wine of this depth.
