2021 Guy Breton Morgon Vieilles Vignes Beaujolais
Winemaker Notes: The vigneron, who goes by the nickname P’tit Max, is perhaps the most laid-back fellow you’ll ever come across. He acts so nonchalant that it’s rather shocking to think he is a contemporary master of vinifying Gamay naturally, a feat that requires stupendous precision to achieve the desired outcome while avoiding the . . . er, smelly pitfalls sometimes associated with such methods. When asked his secret, Max simply shrugs and calmly reveals, “I don’t sleep much for two months after harvest.” The result of eighty-year-old vines, excellent vintage conditions, and many sleepless nights, this is a spicy, stony, impeccably refined Morgon from one of Beaujolais’ all-time greats.
Plum Market Notes: Guy Breton farms organically and uses a non-interventionalist approach in the cellar. His Morgon is structured and complex, marked by flavors of wet soils, dark cherries, smoke and flint. Lapierre fans, you will love this bottle.
