Very fresh, juicy, concentrated, funky in just the right way. Blackberry and menthol. A pretty peppery quality. So clean and juicy and elegant. I’ve found all of Sunier’s wines to be top notch and in league with the region’s best producers.

Update: on the half full bottle that has been in my fridge for a week, it’s positively stunning.. resolved into the most seductive florals. Rerating to 9.4. Bodes very well for storage.

On the nose: violets, iris, blueberry, blackberries, Concord grape and cinnamon (after the natty funk blows off). Damp undergrowth. Red fruit (raspberries, red currant) comes through more on the palate. Be patient with this wine. It takes a moment or two to open up in the glass. The 18 Fleurie has the hallmark silkyness (yes, I’m making this a word) that keeps me coming back to Sunier’s wines.

Wow. This might be my favorite Bojo to drink young. Sooo good. Juicy red fruits, potpourri, and bubblegum upon opening. Gets more serious as the wine opens up if it even lasts that long! Notes of rain-kissed rocks, spice, and violets. So glad to have more bottles of this. And a producer I will be watching for.

Maybe needs one year to balance out but was already nice. Prefer 2017 but I wouldn’t hesitate to grab Sunier wines when I can
