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.

Julien Sunier Regnie 2021
Posted on 03 December 2022. WINEFRONT = Mike Bennie

Regnie needs a pebble in the palate to say, mostly.

This is decent gear. Maraschino cherry, red apple, cedar and sweet tobacco scents. Quite lean and racy in the palate, compact, tight, sheath of silty acid, succulent acidity set to blood orange. Refreshing and fine boned style. A little smoky element, a touch of rustic earthiness too. It fits the bill, it drinks charmingly. The finish perhaps a bit of dried blood and ferrous stuff that could distract some.
