    The 2020 Beaujolais-Lantignié Wild Soul wafts from the glass with aromas of red berries, spices, peonies and sweet soil tones. Medium-bodied, lively and supple, with melting tannins and a natural profile that lives up to its name, it concludes with a sapid finish. It's a blend of purchased grapes and declassified Régnié and was matured in foudre.
