I like this idea: traditional Nouveau season, which seems to have fallen mostly out of favor, but combining it with, what I think is, much more interesting and flavorful Gamay at the cru level. Don't know that I've ever seen Régnié locally.

I've seen some Regnié, Jay, but mostly the ubiquitous Georges Duboeuf. It does seem that the range of selection in Louisville has diminished in recent years, though, Beaujolais and across the board. Anyway, this looks like a fun tasting. I've been out to Cuvee only once, but really enjoyed it for both small-plates food and Scott's approach to wine.
