A cut above, Sunier's Morgon is a much more structured wine than almost all other Beaujolais, and it comes from an organic certified vineyard.
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 ...Learn more
“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.”
“The 2017 Morgon had just been bottled when I tasted it last year, and it's performing much better today, revealing a complex bouquet of ripe cherries, dark chocolate, smoked meats, peonies and spices. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, layered and velvety, with excellent depth and concentration, concluding with a sapid—indeed carnal—finish.”
“More expressive than the Regnié at the moment. Darker, riper fruit aroma – more fruity. More juice in the berries from these sites. Same dry finesse in the texture but more rounded and more juicy. There’s a darkness to the fruit that is very elegant. The tannins are dry but supple. Cool, long and savoury. The overwhelming character is still that stony/mineral quality. Long and fresh, but so beautifully paper-dry. Opens to more fruit. ”
“Intense red and dark berry aromas are complemented by candied rose, fennel and smoky minerals. Juicy and incisive on the palate, offering vibrant black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that become sweeter and spicier with air. Pure, stony and precise, finishing with excellent thrust and length, the silky tannins coming in steadily.”
“Julien Sunier seems to be one of the main drivers for the revolution that is sweeping through Beaujolais at the moment. ”
