Sanded and pink granite, clay sub-soil
Organic farming, harvesting done entirely by hand.
Indigenous yeast fermentations in concrete vats at low temperatures, to preserve fresh fruit flavors and a delicate tannic structure. After fermentations are complete, fruit is slowly pressed, over a 24 hour period, using an ancient vertical press Julien acquired in the Côte D’Or.
20% aged in cement and 80% in neutral French barrels.

The 2017 Régnié burst from the glass with aromas of red fruit compote, strawberries and flowers. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, ample and satiny, with a textural attack, lovely depth at the core and a layered, multifaceted profile. At 13.5% natural alcohol, it’s the ripest of Sunier’s 2017s, but it’s beautifully balanced.
