Laurent provides the most in depth coverage I’ve ever given to the Beaujolais region. Starting first with his own origins and reflections on different experiences in winemaking, before taking us on a virtual tour of the region via its cru and terroir. He covers the gamay grape that has made its home in the region and talks market value over time. Before taking us on a tour of the Henry Fessy cellar and into the glass with two cru Beaujolais he chose from their range, the Régnié 2016 and the Brouilly 2017. If you’ve ever wanted a private tour of Beaujolais, its terroir and winemaking culture this is the episode for you.
