Guy Breton Fleurie 2019
Sealed with a sugarcane Nomacorc, which is nice to see.
Perfumed and deep, flowers meet curry leaf, wet ferns, dark raspberry and cherry of quiet succulence and fine ‘mineral’ feel, but it’s the sweep of smooth velour tannin that brings home the bacon. It’s a wine that feels entirely at ease with itself, and most importantly, is a delight to drink.
