Wine of the week: 2017 Guy Breton Release

Guy Breton is a hero in Beaujolais. Alongside Marcel Lapierre, Jean Foillard and Jean-Paul Thévenet, a group dubbed The Gang of Four by legendary American wine merchant Kermit Lynch, Breton is a disciple of traditionalist Jules Chauvet, practicing viticulture and vinification in a lo-fi manner (read: old vines, rigorous sorting and minimal intervention). And he’s been doing so since 1986. We’re thrilled to offer you these rare wines and, having tasted them recently, can attest to their individual brilliance.

2017 Guy Breton Côte de Brouilly Beaujolais
A fuller, more concentrated expression. Marked by peppery leafiness, brisk acidity and riper redcurrant. $65

2017 Guy Breton Morgon Beaujolais
The most structured cuvée featuring balanced ripeness within – griotte cherry, fleshy raspberry, dark bramble and savoury spice. $52

2017 Guy Breton Régnié Beaujolais
Firm, with more density and brisk fruit highlighting the experience. Made from 100-year-old and 35-year-old vines. $56
