A Wine We Loved

Antoine Sunier 2016 Regnie.
January 10, 2018


Linsey writes,

Regnie is is one of the newer Crus of Beaujolais, (elevated in 1988. It's pink granite soils and high altitude gives us bright fresh fruit with nice acidity, balanced body, and structure.

I met Antoine Sunier on a warm spring night at a winemakers’ dinner at his importer’s apartment in Brooklyn. That night with that group of winemakers and friends was magic. It remains burned in my memory as one of my most quintessential New York nights. There is really nothing quite like meeting the creators behind your favorite bottles. Antoine's charm, charisma, and spunk truly transcend into his wines.

His 2016 is absolutely knee-dropping.


2016 Antoine Sunier Regnie beautiful red ruby hue illuminates from the glass as red fruit and flowers waft up to greet. These are mirrored on the palate with red cherry and pomegranate, light woodland notes and spice. Body is medium plus as are tannins. Very Good Plus. 28.99; Mixed Case, 26.09; Case, 24.64
