Antoine Sunier, child of the 79 vintage, was in no way predestined to become a winegrower... Son of a hairdresser, he had a first professional life in telecoms for 13 years, but was then titillated by the wish to have his feet in the vineyards, thanks to his brother Julien Sunier, who set up his own estate after returning to Beaujolais in 2003. In 2008, while he was living in the French Basque Country, Antoine decided to leave everything behind to follow a year of studies in Beaune. He was in class with Camille Lapierre, Christelle Roch... let's say it, incredible classmates! He did his internships at Château de Prémeaux, and learned winemaking with Lapalu. An impeccable track record! Afterwards, he bought a house with 3.8 hectares of vines in Régnié, distributed his first vintage in 2014, and was certified organic in 2020. Today, with his 5.5 hectares of vines (4.3 ha in Régnié and 1.1 ha in Morgon), Antoine follows the lunar calendar and vinifies his juices naturally. A piece of work to keep a close eye on!
A complex nose carried at the same time by black fruits, and by notes of spices (clove), undergrowth, leather, a touch of violet… Fleshy and equally complex palate, delicate structure on very fine tannins. It is racy and digestible at the same time.
An irresistible juice with notes of raspberry, cherry pit, undergrowth, licorice… Superb palate, velvety and long, finish on a hint of soft spices.
