- In stock, ready to ship
PRODUCER: Driven by agriculture, plain and simple, more precisely “agro-ecology”. Julien Sunier respects nature, the earth and the men who walk upon it. Originally from Burgundy, Julien Sunier worked in vineyards and cellars throughout the world for 10 years. In 2003, he chose Beaujolais and its fabulous terroirs as home. In 2008, Julien founded his own winery, making a long-time dream a reality. The first year the domaine cultivated just 4.5 acres of vines and has since grown to cover 10 acres between the three appellations of Morgon, Fleurie and Régnié, all in organic cultivation. The team works each day to protect and develop the bio-diversity and the fertility of the soils, in order to produce unique wines reflecting the character of their terroirs.
WINEMAKING: Gravity tanked, indigenous yeasts, without SO2, Carbonic maceration (whole grapes fermented in anaerobic) for 10 days and then semi-carbonic for 10 days, manual raking, old-fashioned pressing with vertical press. 100% 228 litres oak barrels (about 10 wines old) for nine to eleven months. Bottled unfiltered with a low addition of sulphites.
TASTING NOTE: Their generous and fleshy Morgon offers notes of black cherries and spices; the pallet is ample possessing beautiful silky tannins. A Bojo to rival Burgundy.
