Julien Sunier Régnié 2018

$60.00 inc. GST

Grape Variety: Gamay

This Beaujolais’ cru, often underestimated, does not have ashamed of its neighbor Morgon. Our Regnie comes from a separate and complementary types of land, a composite of deep granitic sand bringing greediness, friendliness and the other of stony soils of ancient alluvium spicy notes and structure to the wine.


A little less macerated on the skins than the other two crus, it will be appreciated from the bottling by its friendliness. On the nose, the vine peach dominates, followed by a smooth mouth with velvet tannins.

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

“Vivid purple. Heady aromas of mineral-accented red/blue fruits, floral pastilles and incense take on a spicy nuance as the wine stretches out. Fleshy and seamless in the mouth, offering intense black raspberry and boysenberry flavors and a hint of candied rose. Finishes seamless, sweet and very long, showing an echo of florality and supple, even tannins that add gentle grip”_ Josh Raynolds 93
