Domaine Jean-Marc Burgaud, Régnié Vallières 2020
From a tiny, one-hectare vineyard in this lesser-known Beaujolais appellation. Bottled early to capture the fruity exuberance of the cru, this is delightfully pure and spicy, with crunchy fruit texture and a fragrant finish. A joy.

Domaine Jean-Marc Burgaud
Jean-Marc Burgaud is a top Beaujolais grower, claimed by many to be the best producer in Morgon.
Jean-Marc comes from a family of winemakers, and his own career in the industry began in 1989 after he completed a diploma in oenology. He now owns 19 hectares of vineyards in several appellations, comprising 13 hectares in Morgon where his estate is based, plus five hectares in the Beaujolais-Villages area and one hectare in Régnié.
His Régnié grapes are grown on 50-year-old vines in sandy, stony soil. Wines from Régnié – the youngest Beaujolais cru – are often supple, round, and fruity, and Burgaud calls his own example ‘feminine and cheerful.’
Harvesting is by hand, as it has been for generations, and tradition prevails in the winery too. Burgaud’s aim is always to illustrate his passion for winemaking in the most important place of all: the glass.
Perhaps most well-regarded are his two Morgons: the soft, refined Les Charmes and the more meatily-structured Cote du Py, both of which can benefit from time in the cellar.
