A floral and textured 2016 Domaine des Braves, Regnie


The 2016 Domaine des Braves, Regnie is a pleasant return to a wine that I have not tasted in four vintages.  In that span, it appears that wine making has shifted from fermentation in cement tank to stainless steel.  Fear not, for the wine is just as good now as it was in the past.  This particular bottle offers plenty of fruit and texture, effectively combining floral notes and weight.  It is a perfect wine to drink mid week.  I suggest you pick up a few bottles from MacArthur Beverages.

2016 Domaine des Braves, Regnie – $16
Imported by Dionysos Imports.  This wine is 100% Gamay sourced from 45+ year old vines on soils of sand, pink granite, and limestone. It is fermented in stainless steel then aged in a combination of stainless steel and tanks.  Alcohol 13%.  There is a dense start of tart red and black fruit flavors before a more floral middle of red currant. The wine is riper and sweeter in the finish as it becomes more ethereal in nature.  It has a fine ripe, dry texture and even develops more weight with air.  In the end this is a dense, round, mineral wine which picks up intensity towards the finish.  *** Now – 2021.
