The resulting wines are exceptionally pure, elegant and without artifice. Perhaps it is the provenance of his barrels, but there is a bit of a Chambolle hand that comes through on Sunier’s wines (though perhaps a touch of Morey on the Morgon?). They are at once bright, floral and high-tones but with an ethereal texture and a beguiling, long finish. While you would be hard pressed to try and delay the immediate gratification of drinking the wines young, they have the depth and balanced structure to reward medium-term cellaring.
“Julien Sunier seems to be one of the main drivers for the revolution that is sweeping through Beaujolais at the moment.” – Robert Parker
“These are complex, thrilling examples of their type, laden with cool fruit and a sense of focus and precision. My only complaint? That Julien does not have a dozen wines for me to taste!” – Neal Martin, Wine Advocate.
