    Also known as "Petit Max" by his friends, Guy Breton is certainly a name in everyone's ear ever since Kermit Lynch dubbed him, together with Marcel Lapierre, Jean-Paul Thévenet and Jean Foillard, as Beaujolais famous "Gang of Four" in the '80s. The essence of their philosophy: take a step back, appreciate and cultivate old vines, apply organic farming practices, avoid the use of sulphur, let natural ferments do their magic and help the terroir expressing itself through minimal intervention. Following these principals, each of them has ever since proven that Beaujolais is more than just 'Nouveau' and can indeed produce meaningful, complex and wonderful wines. Read More

Press Review

    Guy Breton Côte de Brouilly 2017

    Champagne may be considered the traditional wine for most celebrations, but what could be more spontaneously festive and happiness-inducing than juicy, bright Gamay? This joyous Côte de Brouilly is like the arrival of spring in a bottle, warming and invigorating after the gray days of winter. Brambly, full of energy and verve, with a pleasant Aperol-esque bitterness and loads of floral accents and sappy stems, it has a bouncy lightness that is the perfect pick-me-up and salute to all things merry. Who needs bubbles when you can avail yourself of this high-spirited beauty and toast to the change in the season, a ball game, or even a Friday! Here’s to, well, whatever!

    As one might expect, this cru delivers more muscle along with denser, darker fruit. What tannins it does have are perfectly balanced by fresh acidity and a texture approaching that of velvet.
