Julien Sunier Fleurie 2017

Former hair stylist and Dijon native Julien Sunier’s world turned around when winemaker Christophe Roumier became one of his clients. After joining Roumier in the cellar, Sunier spent time abroad perfecting organic & biodynamic winemaking. In 2008, he purchased 3 hectares of old vine plots from which he produces wines as naturally as possible. The 2017 Fleurie is ripe and red-fruited, showing layered notes of soil, fresh herbs, and wet stones.

Gamay

The purplish grapey red of Beaujolais lately taken more seriously as a wine that punches above its weight. Perfectly fruity and yet in certain villages imbued with a stony mineral core.

Burgundy, France

The most revered, fetishized wine region on earth and the spiritual home of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Reaching from Chablis down to Beaujolais, it sits on a limestone outcropping in central France.
