Professional Reviews

Wine Advocate - William Kelley

Produced from vines that are two years into organic conversion and matured in foudre, Sunier's 2018 Beaujolais-Lantignié Wild Soul bursts with aromas of raspberries, grilled meats, licorice and rich soil tones. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny and layered, with powdery tannins, lively acids and a flavorful finish. Sunier tells me he's looking for juicy grapes for this cuvée, seeking suppleness to contrast with his more concentrated, structured cru Beaujolais bottlings. 


Josh Raynolds - Vinous

Light, vivid magenta. Vibrant red berry and floral scents are complicated by suggestions of game and smoky minerals. Juicy and taut on the palate, offering bitter cherry and redcurrant flavors that unfurl slowly on the back half. Closes on a tangy red berry note, with firming acidity driving a long, sharply delineated and subtly tannic finish. No excess fat here, that's for sure - drink it now, for its energy. (Drink between 2019-2023)
