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."
