About

92

"The 2016 Re´gnie´ from Julien Sunier (Antoine’s older brother) is also an excellent bottle, with a bit more sappiness than Antoine’s version, but with the same impeccable balance and classic soil signature. The nose is complex and very expressive, offering up scents of black cherries, sweet cranberries, fresh thyme, a touch of lavender, dark soil tones and gentle smokiness in the upper register. On the palate the wine is full, complex and succulent at the core, with excellent transparency, a touch of backend tannin, bright acids and excellent length and grip on the focused and complex finish. 2017-2030+."

88-90 Neal Martin - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2016 Regnie, which has 10 milligrams per liter of SO2, is completely aged in barrel. It has an elegant bouquet, with a mixture of raspberry and wild strawberry and a touch of undergrowth developing with time. The palate is well balanced with grippy tannin, lightly spiced with white pepper and a hint of clove, leading to a structured finish that leaves that welcome residue of white pepper tingling on the aftertaste. Very fine.
