Maison Passot Regnie 2016
Maison Passot is a small 11 hectare family property spread over 4 crus in Beaujolais. Owners Dominique, Rémy and Simon continue the family tradition, going back generations. The family tends 21 plots - half of which are in Chiroubles, one quarter in Morgon, and smaller holdings in Fleurie and Régnié - in addition to some Viognier vines. All farming follows strict tenets of la lutte raisonnée for a more “natural” wine, surrounded by signs of life and rich biodiversity. Hand harvested.
Located north of Lyon in eastern France, Beaujolais overlaps Burgundy in the north and Rhône in the south. The picturesque Beaujolais vineyards run along the Saône River where the Crus form a meandering path on the granite terrain.
Régnié - only one square mile in size - is situated in the bottom of the Brouilly hill, known for its pink granite soil with high mineral content. From old 40 year old vines that grow on gravely granite with some clay on slopes facing East.
100% Gamay, hand harvested
Perfumed nose of cherry, raspberry, red currant and a touch of spice. This well balanced wine is medium bodied with a pleasant long finish. Well structured by the fruit flavors and delicate tannins. 13% Alc.
