Notes from Charles Neal Selections:

"Domaine de Colette is located in the small village of Lantignié, regarded as the top village in the cru of Regnié, and less than 1 kilometer from the border of Morgon. It is owned and run by the humble Jacky Gauthier (with his wife Evelyne), whose family has been making wine for several generations. It was his father René who officially created Domaine de Colette in 1953. Gauthier began studying enology in the late 1970’s at the tender age of 17, planning to work with his parents’ on their then 8 hectares of vineyards. Meanwhile, in 1980 he got an offer from an uncle to help him work his vineyard, which he gladly accepted, and in 1984 was able to buy that vineyard and make wine from both family vineyards. His father passed away a decade later and he created one domaine encompassing all the family vineyards.

Colette’s old vine release exemplifies the forward, explosive aromas of Regnié and Colette itself. Its attractive ruby red color is what you first notice, followed by lovely notes of raspberry, strawberry and roses. A beautiful wine that can partner well with charcuterie, andouillette, white meats, red mullet fish and creamy cheeses."
