Born and raised in Dijon, Julien Sunier was mentored by Burgundian luminary Christophe Roumier. The time spent working in Christophe's vineyards and cellar kickstarted his passion for organic viticulture and low-tech winemaking.
After travelling the world pursuing wine work wherever there was surf nearby, Julien eventually settled back in Beaujolais and secured himself some old vine plots in the famous Crus of Fleurie, Morgon and Régnié, transitioned them to organic practices and has now launched his own label to great acclaim.
He makes Gamay with a Burgundian sensibility. The wines have a depth and resonance that is rare for the region. Structure, minerality and fruit intensity are the signature calling cards of his style. They will continue evolve majestically in the cellar for decades to come.
A rising star out of Beaujolais, the cru offerings from Julien Sunier show exceptional structure and density. This limited pack showcases his brilliant 2018 releases from three of the region's top vineyards.
