Beaujolais…often disregarded and overlooked. I will admit there are French wines that may show a little more sophistication but to ignore Beaujolais as a category is a huge mistake. Over the weekend I uncorked a bottle of 2010 Georges Descombes Régnié and was amazed at the complexity and depth I found in this medium-bodied wine.
About the Wine- From the Winery
2010 Georges Descombes Régnié is a Gamay from the Beaujolais region of France. It has 13% alcohol and retails for $23.99.
Now the Fun Part- Tasting the Wine
2010 Georges Descombes Régnié pours a bright ruby in the glass. The nose is musty with aromas of strawberries, cherries, and spice. The palate offers layers of dark cherries, raspberries, pepper, and vibrant acidity. The finish is long and elegant and gives your palate time to ponder the flavors in the wine. A wonderful wine at a very fair price.
My Wine Rating- A-
Food Pairing Suggestions- Pair this wine with a charcuterie plate, grilled chicken with roasted vegetables, or Camembert cheese
