WINE INFORMATION

Beaujolais is a region in the south of Burgundy that produces primarily red wine and small amounts of white and rosé. Its vineyards are the most densely planted in France, with 9,000-13,000 vines/hectare. It was the first appellation in France to add “villages” to its classification back in 1950; in all, there are 38 communes or villages, located in the hilly north of Beaujolais. If all the fruit comes from a single village, its name may be appended to Beaujolais or Beaujolais-Villages. Most winegrowers don’t, finding it easier to sell to a large negociant. There are over 1000 winegrowers in Beaujolais, half with their own winery. Carbonic or semi-carbonic maceration is the norm for red wine production here.

This estate was founded as Domaine Tracot in 1902. Henri Dubost purchased it in 1960 and his son Jean-Paul has run it since the mid-nineties, the fourth generation of his family to do so. The  26-hectare property includes parcels in Lantignié and the Brouilly, Moulin-a-Vent, and Morgon crus. He has gradually shifted to organic and biodynamic farming practices and has moved to low-intervention winemaking in the cellar: spontaneous fermentations, no destemming for most wines, semi-carbonic macerations, and bottling with very low levels of added sulfur dioxide.

Grapes for this wine grow on eight hectares with yellow granite and blue clay soils in the hills due west of Regnié. The juice goes through a two-week whole-cluster semi-carbonic maceration in steel, ages for the better part of a year in tank, and is lightly filtered and bottled with a bare minimum of sulfur. Lantignié is known for darkly colored, concentrated, and well-structured wines, best consumed at cellar temperature.
