Guy Breton Morgon Vieille Vignes 12pk 2019

Guy Breton Morgon Vieilles Vignes 2019
Old vines from one of the so-called ‘Gang of Four’, which included Marcel Lapierre, Jean-Paul Thévenet, and Jean Foillard, so from that, you may understand the ethos and style of his wines. Importer: Fesq
Cherry and spiced strawberry, something of a ginger biscuit character, dried roses and a smattering of sweet herb. Fine and precise, a rain on pebbles sort of mineral feel, loose with pleasure, but tight and controlled, in a way. Finish is long, fresh, and again stony. It’s a beautiful expression of Morgon. Beautiful. So lucid.
