Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"This Cuvée "wild soul" impresses with its friendliness, its freshness, an unpretentious fruit bomb. 100% Gamay based, it blends different Beaujolais-Villages. The cuvée "Wild Soul", is an anytime light red wine, unpretentious, with a great freshness and purity. Thanks to this fabulous gamay grapes so aromatic, planted on granitic terroirs."
92/100 Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, August 2020 (2018 Vintage)
"Deep, rich, minerally expression, packed with dark cherry, dark raspberry and liquorice. It’s medium-bodied, earthy and spicy, supple yet firm tannin, plenty of flavour delivered with finesse, and a finish of cocoa nibs and dried herb. What a great drink. A bit different, but so good."

92/100 James Suckling (2019 Vintage)
"Super fresh and bright with a self-confidently crisp and light-footed style, this is a joyful expression of Beaujolais with a ton of character and an almost racy personality. Decisively dry finish that begs for pate du lapin or andouillette. Drink now."
91/100 Josh Raynolds, Vinous (2019 Vintage)
"Deep, shimmering red. Mineral-tinged raspberry and pomegranate aromas are complemented by floral and cured meat accents. Juicy, energetic red fruit and floral pastille flavours pick up a musky licorice nuance with air. Juicy and lively in character, showing firm closing bite and well-judged tannins that add framework and grip. Best after 2021."
90/100 William Kelly, The Wine Advocate (2019 Vintage)
"Bursting with exuberant aromas of cherries, raspberries, plums and flowers, Sunier's 2019 Beaujolais-Lantignié Wild Soul is medium to full-bodied, velvety and succulent, with a generous core of ripe but crunchy fruit, lively acids and melting tannins. As I wrote last year, Julien is looking for juicy grapes for this cuvée, seeking suppleness and immediate charm."
