Antoine Sunier Morgon Wine comes from 60 year old vines in the lieu-dit Croix de Chevre in the Grand Cras at 270 meters in altitude. This young organically grown Beaujolais has an enticing and plush palate of berries, soil tones and earthy notes on a medium-bodied palate with nice acidic lift on the finish. This is a direct, edgy wine with good acidity and a savoury edge to the fruit.
Antoine Sunier starts with hand-harvesting of the grapes with careful sorting of the bunches in the vineyard. Fermentions occur using the traditional carbonic method in a closed vat with no de-stemming and only indigenous yeasts. The fermentations last between 8-15 days, at which point the grapes are pressed and flow by gravity into a combination of 80-90% used 8+ year old Burgundy barrels 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 mise.
Antoine Sunier officially jumped into this community of Beaujoloises in 2014 when he purchased a house with a small vinification cellar in the village of Régnié along with 0.8 Ha of vineyards. Antoine’s Beaujolais debut in 2014 began with two wines, one from Régnié and the second from Morgon.
