Antoine Sunier Régnié 2022
Antoine's wild yeast fermented, low sulfur Beaujolais Crus are textured, ample and graceful.
Antoine is one of the two Sunier brothers producing high quality Cru Beaujolais. The winemaking starts with hand-harvesting of the grapes with careful sorting of the bunches in the vineyard. Fermentations occur using the traditional carbonic method in a closed concrete vats with no de-stemming and only including indigenous yeasts. The fermentations last between 8-15 days, at which point the grapes are pressed and flow, with the help of gravity, into a combination of 80-90% used Burgundy barrels (8+ years old) and the balance in epoxy-lined concrete tanks. The élévage lasts 7-8 months, at which point the wines are bottled without fining and filtration and only a small addition of SO2 at the bottling. Organic
