The Wine Advocate: 92+/100
Matured in used barrels from Chambolle-Musigny’s Domaine Roumier, this is the first bottling of Sunier’s 2018 Régnié, amounting to some 7,000 bottles out of a total production closer to 20,000. Wafting from the glass with scents of wild berries, potpourri and dark chocolate, it’s medium to full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping, with powdery structuring tannins, good concentration and a sapid finish. Recently bottled, I suspect it will perform even better with a year in the cellar. William Kelly, The Wine Advocate
Julien Sunier Morgon 2018
Posted on 08 August 2020. WINEFRONT – MIKE BENNIE
As I so often say, I buy, and drink way more cru Beaujolais than I do Burgundy. Less oak. More terroir on show, quite often. And way more bang for your buck. Morgon perhaps the most earthy cru, with a whole lot of bass notes.
Earthy, a big show of exotic spice, rose oil, cherry essence, pepper over ripe strawberries. Medium-bodied, firm slatey tannin, beef dripping, good cut through of sappy acidity, smoked meats and spice on a long finish. It has a lot to stuff to unpack, as at now, but such a good wine of verity and staunch regionality.
