Julien Sunier Regnie 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine: "Situated at the bottom of the celebrated Côte du Py at the edge of the Morgon appellation, this parcel of 1.1 hectares of old vines is planted in sandy granitic soil in the lieux-dit En Oeillat and reaches the best expression from this lesser known of the Cru Beaujolais villages. One month less time aging of this wine as compared to the other two wines from the domaine, it knows well to be a wine of conviviality and pleasure. The nose is dominated by orchard peach followed by a palate posessing velvety tannins. It’s mission : to play upon the tastebuds with savory notes from the day’s first taste of charcuterie." - Winery Winery: "The domaine of Julien Sunier is one of the most exciting new tiny properties to come out of the Beaujolais in recent years. Sunier grew up in Dijon, but was not part of a wine family. His mother in fact made her living cutting hair, and one of her regular clients happened to (auspiciously) be Christophe Roumier. The resulting wines are exceptionally pure, elegant and without artifice. Perhaps it is the provenance of his barrels, but there is a bit of a Chambolle hand that comes through on Sunier's wines (though perhaps a touch of Morey on the Morgon?). They are at once bright, floral and high-tones but with an ethereal texture and a beguiling, long finish. While you would be hard pressed to try and delay the immediate gratification of drinking the wines young, they have the depth and balanced structure to reward medium-term cellaring." - Winery
