GUY BRETON! 🥳
The legendary producer from “The Gang Of Four” (alongside fellow Beaujolais producers Marcel Lapierre, Jean-Paul Thévenet & Jean Foillard) who are so often referenced as reviving the older methods of making wine and influencing so many other winemakers to make authentic wine in a low-intervention wine.
P’tit Max 2018 is a Gamay sourced from Guy Breton’s 'Les Charmes’ vineyard in Morgon, featuring very old vines (some 100 years plus). The wine is elegant and soft in it’s tannic structure (more so than most other Morgon wines in our opinion), yet benefits from some air and is lighter than expected.
This wine is a little closed if drinking now, so we suggest to age for a while.
If drinking now, we suggest to decant for 2 hours (yes!) as this is a subtle wine at the moment, with a delicate, mild expression that requires time to find. Black cherry, vanilla and some herbs only then become noticed. It has a thinnish mouthfeel, ideal for afternoon sips.
