Vinous Reverie Notes
A native of Regnie, Patrick, as he says of himself, “knows only one village, my village”. Although he was born in 1962, his family has been cultivating vines in Beaujolais since 1670. Under Louis XIV there was no straddle, only animal traction. It is the "Percheron" horse breed that will give birth to his family name Péchard when they were ploughmen-cultivators. In homage to his father Antoine, called Tano in the village, Patrick attaches his nickname to his patronymic when he settles down in the year of his twenties. The Regnie cru, the flagship appellation of the wine estate, is available in several cuvees, aged differently depending on the terroir. This “Nuance de Gres” Regnie is made with semi-carbonic maceration for 14 days, aged for 12 months in sandstone jars. Tasting Notes: The minerality of the terroir is highlighted by the choice of aging in sandstone jars. The freshness and elegance of red fruits, with a dominance of raspberry, leads to notes of mint and fresh tobacco leaves. The fresh and silky attack of the appetizer recalls these menthol notes which harmoniously coat these supple tannins, characteristics of the Cru Regnie. An original wine, an original wine.
