    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 Régnié 2017

    At first, a dollop of supple, juicy fruit evokes the sandy layer of topsoil into which these Gamay vines—many of them 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 let us not forget the house style—Breton’s wines are designed to be drunk with reckless abandon, and this is no exception.

    Guy Breton Régnié 2017

    Grown on very lean, rocky granite soils, and it tastes like it. Bright red fruit, spice, and a crunchy, stony finish are this Régnié’s hallmarks.
