Dijon born surfer turned Cru Beaujolais, natural wine champion, Julien has extensive experience working for notable organic and biodynamic estates in Burgundy (Christophe Roumier), New Zealand, California, and 2018 marks his 10th year farming his own organic vineyards. Vintage in and vintage out his wines are deft, clean, and clearly express site with captivating transparency.

  • Winemaker: Julien Sunier
  • Varieties: Gamay
  • Farming: Organic (certified), natural
  • Terroir: Very granitic, rocky, shallow soil with the presence of blue stones (diorite). All gamay from Beaujolais, predominately from sites in and around Régnié.
  • Vinification: Cold carbonic vinification without extraction, alcoholic fermentation with wild spontaneous yeasts. De-vatting by hand (no pumps) followed by a gentle pressing with an old-fashioned vertical press. 
  • Aging: Aged on the fine lees for 8-10 months in a large 3000-liter oval tank and horizontal concrete vats, to favor aging in order to capture the maximum of fruit and to avoid any premature oxidation.
    No addition of SO2 during vinification and aging. Unfiltered with very low addition of sulfites at bottling.
  • Tasting Notes: friendly, fresh, and unpretentious fruit bomb with a big structure and a dark, earthy finish. Cranberry and lingonberry jam, sanguine and fresh-turned earth.
