About

92

Antoine Sunier’s version of Regnie in 2019 is a touch more robust in style than brother Julien’s this year, but equally compelling. The bouquet delivers a deep and pure blend of red and black cherries, cranberries, gamebird, wood smoke, dark soil tones, roses and a top note of fresh thyme. On the palate the wine is bright, focused and full-bodied, with fine depth at the core, very good soil signature, lovely balance and a bit of tannin perking up the long, complex and quite classy finish. There is a bit of Morgon personality to be found here, as can often be the case with top flight examples of Regnie, such as this wine. It does not have the pure seductive charm of Julien Sunier’s Regnie right out of the blocks, but it is every bit as good and may well live a few years longer in bottle as well. But, I would opt to give this wine a year’s worth of bottle age before really sinking my teeth into it.
