"Beautiful cherry nose with some real subtlety. Sleek and crisp but also concentrated, delivering a long, clean finish. The gentle tannins are beautifully integrated. Lacy and elegant."
"The domaine of Julien Sunier is one of the most exciting new tiny properties to come out of Beaujolais in recent years. His wines are exceptionally pure, elegant and without artifice. Perhaps it is the provenance of the used barrels he gets from Christophe Roumier, but there is a bit of a Chambolle hand that comes through on Sunier's wines. They are at once bright, floral and high-toned, but with an ethereal texture and a beguiling, long finish. His 2017 Fleurie is Gamay at its most structured and expressive. Whole grape clusters are fermented in cool concrete vats with only indigenous yeast, which results in the exquisite purity of fruit Sunier is known for. In the glass, Sunier’s 2017 Fleurie is bright red, while the aromas are perfumed and full of fresh cherry, strawberry, rose petals, and black pepper. Medium-bodied and full of life, the wine has a very tactile mineral component that gives it drive and persistence on the palate—it is a prime example of how a wine need not be “big” to be powerful."~Distributor Notes
