Domaine Régis Rossignol Changarnier

Diminutive but energetic and very hospitable Régis and his (unofficially) adopted son, François, bring well over half a century’s experience to bear on running their seven-hectare estate. Régis’ winemaking philosophy is very much to craft ‘vins de terroir’, and as such he has retained most of the traditions handed down to him by his father. Having said this, he is also keen that his wines excel, so he does modify those practices where he sees room for improvement. For example,since 1995, he has lightly filtered his wines, and he de-stems 80% of his Volnay and 50% of his Beaune. However, the Volnay Premier Cru is macerated with all of the stems, as he says he wants it to be capable of long-term ageing.

Other wines by this producer

  1. 2008 Beaune 1er Cru Les Theurons, Domaine Régis Rossignol Changarnier

    Transparent red colour. Musky, chocolaty fruit; slightly mature-smelling. Real development of fruit aroma in the glass over time. On the palate, sweet, delicate fruit, slightly gamey. Excellent length, subtle fruit, light tannin.

  2. 2008 Volnay, Domaine Régis Rossignol Changarnier

    The nose is a fantastic combination of cherry and rosehip fruit with delicious gamey/spicy/nutty complexity. In the mouth it is medium-bodied and elegant with bright acidity, fine tannin and a complex finish. As befits its septuagenarian winemaker, this is a wonderful traditional Volnay.

  3. 2008 Volnay 1er Cru, Domaine Régis Rossignol Changarnier

    Savoury but with intense fruit that opens up with aeration. Slight element of mineral/gritty character displayed by the village level Volnay. Greater intensity of fruit, which persists excellently on the palate, and balanced, fine-grained tannin. Smokey/savoury character on finish. Superb.

  4. 2010 Beaune 1er Cru Les Theurons, Domaine Régis Rossignol Changarnier

    Transparent red colour. Musky, chocolaty fruit; slightly mature-smelling. Real development of fruit aroma in the glass over time. On the palate, sweet, delicate fruit, slightly gamey. Excellent length, subtle fruit, light tannin.

  5. 2011 Bourgogne Pinot Noir, Domaine Régis Rossignol Changarnier

    Beautifully bright, light, ruby Pinot colour. Wild strawberries on the nose with amazing purity, 12.5% alcohol, and lightness of touch which really speak of a cool climate. Looking for Burgundian elegance? – this is it. However, this wine is no shrinking violet and has fine tannins and high acidity. Some will find this austere on its own, but it really refreshes the palate if drunk with food.
