Fleurie, Domaine Julien Sunier, Beaujolais, France 2018

Red France
£27

It is a breath of fresh air to find someone as passionate about Beaujolais as Julien Sunier at a time when most producers in the region are happy churning out wines that taste like liquid candy. Hand picked grapes are brought to the winery where they undergo a long and slow carbonic maceration before élevage in old Burgundy barrels for eight to twelve months. There is very little in the way of additions, with only minimal sulphur used at bottling and absolutely no chaptalisation, artificial yeasts or other adjustments.

Julien Sunier has created an astonishingly delicious Beaujolais with this near-perfect Fleurie; the wine is beautifully concentrated, has great purity of red berry fruit, with a complex finish- a truly fantastic wine.

There are few producers as passionate about their region as Julien Sunier is about Beaujolais. The Domaine is located in the town of Avenas with vineyards scattered on three different Crus: Regnie, Fleurie and Morgon. Following in the tradition of his friends Lapierre & Thévenet, Julien is a natural winemaker who practises biodynamic viticulture. Hand picked grapes are brought to the winery where they undergo a long and slow carbonic maceration before élevage in old Burgundy barrels for eight to twelve months. There is very little in the way of additions, with only minimal sulphur used at bottling and absolutely no chaptalization, artificial yeasts or other adjustments.
