Domaine Regnard, Sampigny-lès-Maranges

We first tasted Florian’s wine on a brasserie terrace in the centre of Santenay after a long day of producer visits. We were immediately impressed and arranged a tasting the next morning where we met Florian’s partner Camille, and their two huge dogs. They have recently built a slick, modern winery and the wines have clearly benefited from the investment. The first vines at the domaine were acquired by Auguste Regnard just after the first world war and Florian is the fourth generation involved, now tending those precious, original parcels. Their seventeen hectares of vines stretch across the southern Côtes de Beaune and include Santenay, Maranges and Chassagne Montrachet.
