2015 Guy Breton Morgon Vieilles Vignes

Guy Breton took over the family domaine from his grandfather in 1986. Until that point, the family was selling their fruit to the large cooperative wineries. Breton’s domaine is comprised of just over four hectares most of which lies in the appellation of Morgon. Guy Breton along with Marcel Lapierre, Jean-Paul Thévenet and Jean Foillard was part of the Kermit Lynch “Gang of Four” which called for a return to the old practices of viticulture and vinification.

Crimson in color. 14% ABV. Charming nose of red fruits, flowers, citrus and forest floor. Medium body with perfect acidity. Crisp and fresh. Black cherry, black raspberry, orange rind and baking spices on the palate. Nice length on the finish. Delightful Beaujolais that is showing beautifully. I really do need to buy more from this producer. Best over the next 2-3 years.

My rating: 92 points.

Guy Breton is imported by Kermit Lynch and the new releases can always be found there.
