Domaine Julien Sunier, despite not coming from a wine family, has emerged as one of the most thrilling winemakers in Beaujolais. After working with renowned winemaker Christophe Roumier, Sunier developed a passion for wine and embarked on a globe-trotting adventure, working harvests in different wine regions. His experiences solidified his interest in organic and biodynamic viticulture.
In 2008, Sunier established his own domaine. Currently, the domaine consists of nine hectares of vineyards spanning the prestigious Cru villages of Fleurie, Morgon, and Régnié. These vineyards are located across three protected designations of origin within Beaujolais. He converted these vineyards to organic viticulture, employing whole cluster fermentations with indigenous yeasts in concrete vats to maintain the fresh fruit flavors and delicate tannin structure. Aging in Burgundy barrels from his friend Roumier, Sunier's wines exude purity and elegance, with hints of Chambolle and Morey influence.
Driven by a desire to constantly improve, Sunier introduced a negotiant wine, Wild Soul Beaujolais-Lantignié Villages, following severe losses in 2016 and 2017. Lantignié, a charming village near Villié-Morgon and Beaujeu, represents Sunier's creativity and resilience. As he continues to make his mark, we eagerly anticipate Julien Sunier's rise among the most compelling producers in the region.
