Julien Sunier

Tijdens een bezoek aan de Bourgogne zagen we de Fleurie van Julien Sunier bij de lunch op een wijnkaart staan. De sommelier probeerde ons nog een Clos de Tart 2003 voor €250,- per glas aan te smeren, maar wij kenden de reputatie van Sunier en besloten voor de Fleurie te gaan. Daar hadden wij geen spijt van! Zelden een Beaujolais geproefd waarvan de energie zo uit het glas spatte. Het was meteen duidelijk dat we in contact moesten komen met deze oud-leerling van Roumier. Een driekwart jaar later kunnen we in deze mailing vol trots aankondigen dat we vanaf de 2018’s importeur zijn van dit spectaculaire huis. William Kelley: "Julien Sunier established his own small Beaujolais domaine in 2008 after a stint working with Christophe Roumier in Chambolle-Musigny and has rapidly emerged as one of the region's new star producers. Whole-cluster fermentation in cement vats at low temperature followed by élevage in used Burgundy barrels are the rudiments of his approach. The style is supple, elegant and perfumed, emphasizing grace and charm, and all the cuvées reviewed here come warmly recommended.'

  1. Régnié I Julien Sunier

    William Kelley: "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.' Vinous: "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." Lees verder

  2. Fleurie I Julien Sunier

    Vinous: "Brilliant magenta. A hugely perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red berries, cherry preserves, candied violet and exotic spices, along with a vibrant mineral nuance that expands with air. Stains the palate with sweet, penetrating raspberry, cherry, mulberry and floral pastille flavors that display a suave blend of power and delicacy. The spicy note comes back on an extremely long, floral-dominated finish that's given shape by smooth, harmonious tannins." Lees verder

  3. Morgon I Julien Sunier

    Vinous: "Deep, vivid ruby. A highly complex bouquet evokes fresh, mineral-tinged dark berries and cherry liqueur, along with suggestions of succulent flowers and baking spices. Silky and focused in the mouth, offering alluringly sweet black raspberry, cherry-cola, spicecake and rose pastille flavors that are underscored by a vein of smoky minerality. Gentle tannins sneak up slowly on the impressively long finish, which shows excellent clarity and leaves behind sappy blue fruit and spice notes." Lees verder
