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
Guy Breton Morgon Vieilles Vignes 2022
Floral, mint and strawberries, rose petals, nutmeg, a bit of volatile lift to it, which is fine given the perfume on offer here. Raspberry, ripe strawberry, ripe tomato, grainy sandy tannin, medium-bodied, kind of edgy and sappy, but has energy and a chalky strawberry, hazelnut and balsamic finish of solid length. Frisky, on the edge, but pretty good. I like the sandy tannin finish.
