Hand selected from hills of Beaujolais
Currants and raspberries dominate with just enough floral presence to make this enjoyable red complex enough for the serious aficionado.
Beaujolais' newest Cru, Régnié received its classification as recently as 1988. Relatively sandy soils make this particluar Cru perfect for producing pretty, soft and straight forward gamay. Becuase of the freshness of flavors these wines are best consumed within 5 years of harvest.

THE PERFECT Recipe | goat Cheese stuffed dates wrapped in Prosciutto
Beaujolais is a perfect aperitif wine, so pair it with some hors d'oeuvres to kick start your dinner party or Westworld viewing party or just eat the whole plate yourself. We’re not going to judge.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Make a small slice, about halfway through, into each date so that you can stuff each with about a teaspoon of goat cheese.
- Wrap each date with a strip of prosciutto and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet, with the seam of the prosciutto placed down.
Bake for 10-15 minutes or until prosciutto is crispy and cheese is slightly browned/bubbly.
Serve warm, top with balsamic vinegar or balsamic reduction if you like!
5 ounces good quality goat cheese
1 package of medjool or sunkist (or your favorite brand) dates, pitted
2 slices of prosciutto, cut into thin strips
”Once a winner, always a winner”
Jean Joly, a Belgian, first purchased Chateau de Durette after falling in love with the vineyard while honeymooning there with his wife in 1964. 42 years later, he purchased a home in Régnié appropriately named "The Belgian House" as it was used to house Belgian refugees during WWI. A true Renaissance man, Joly managed his hometown basketball team for 20 years and led them to a European Cup. It's this 'winner's mentality' that has helped Château de Durette flourish over the years.
