Light Red Wines

What is different at Descombes is the lengthy aging of the wines. The wines often go through a year of raising and are then held back in bottle. Descombes feels that working without sulphur and filtration requires extra élevage to guarantee that the wines are not only delicious but also stable. The Régnié is the only early release, as it is vinified quicker to make a fruitier, more forward wine. The old-vine bottlings are Georges’ true passion and receive extra bottle aging before release.

Georges Descombes is not to be confused with Jean Descombes, a grower who sells his entire production to Georges Duboeuf. This is a totally separate estate which Georges Descombes took over in 1988 with ½ hectare from his father.

Regnie is a kind of off the path region in Beaujolais, up against the bigger names, anyway. This one is organic and mid-weight and features a lean minerality and audacious acidity that make it a cinch with any white wine dish. Yes, its red, but THIS kind of red behaves like a white, so put a little chill on it and we'll talk in the morning.

*Natural and Organic

Staff Review:

We discovered this at a hip wine bar in Paris, cool story right? We actually did, but the wine is just fabulous! An organic wine full of fresh fruit, minerality and acidity made of one of my favorite grapes: Gamay. Yes, it is red but treat this wine like a white and put a slight chill on it. Enjoy!
