Winery Details

    *Available VIC & QLD* 

    Also known as "Petit Max" by his friends, Guy Breton is certainly a name in everyone's ear ever since Kermit Lynch dubbed him, together with Marcel Lapierre, Jean-Paul Thévenet and Jean Foillard, as Beaujolais famous "Gang of Four" in the '80s. The essence of their philosophy: take a step back, appreciate and cultivate old vines, apply organic farming practices, avoid the use of sulphur, let natural ferments do their magic and help the terroir expressing itself through minimal intervention. Following these principals, each of them has ever since proven that Beaujolais is more than just 'Nouveau' and can indeed produce meaningful, complex and wonderful wines. Read More

Press Review

    Guy Breton Marylou Beaujolais-Villages 2021
    This one GW says ‘comes out of the MB playbook’, hence we have a very fresh feeling, lighter, loose knit vin de soif kinda style.
    Sour cherry, a little hazy red apple juice, some alpine herbs, fennel. Thirst-quenching kind of style, really just a few pay grades up from rosé, but with a sheath of finer tannin and just that bit more depth. It’s really lovely, really delicious, so skollable, very lively. Out of the box for Beaujolais classicists but the pay off is a wine of immense and immediate appeal. Could drink this all day.

     "Breton’s Marylou exemplifies all that is right with Beaujolais. Easy on the eyes (just look at that vibrant color!), easy on the head (alcohol and sulfur circumscribed), easy enough on the wallet (this is Guy Breton, living legend, after all!), and full steam ahead on the joy of it all."
