2020 Guy Breton Régnié Beaujolais
Winemaker Notes: At first, notes of supple, juicy fruit evoke the sandy layer of topsoil into which these Gamay vines—many of them a century old—sink their roots. Then a granite kick, full of gritty spice, clutches the palate with gusto, conjuring the stony bedrock beneath. After all, the vineyards of Régnié sit high on a slope between Brouilly and Morgon, so you can expect the perfume and brightness of the former along with a hint of the mineral-driven structure typical of the latter. And don't forget the house style—Breton’s wines are designed to be drunk with reckless abandon, and this is no exception.
Plum Market Notes: An icon of the natural wine movement in France, Guy Breton's Beaujolais are truly stunning- quite light in color, but aromatically explosive with notes of cranberry, peony, granite, and tremendous length. This is real wine, made from old vines, organically grown, with native yeast fermentation. Easy to drink, yet quite complex.
