DOMAINE DE LA PLAIGNE, Regnié-Durette
Gilles, Cécile and Victorien Roux produce fantastic, juicy and fleshy Beaujolais from their 13-ha vineyards on sandy granitic soils; The harvest is made by hand, oak is kept far, far in the background so the wines show great purity.
The robe of the Beaujolais-Villages is bright rubis, subtle red berries – raspberry, redcurrant, cherry – are found on the nose. Silky and caressing texture, freshly crushed red fruit, very clean, light with pure cherry character. Delicious, gives simple, but immense pleasure in a typical good Beaujolais fashion.
