One of the superstars in Beaujolais. This is delicious. Pure fruit, natural tasting fruit, soft, juicy and really long finish.
Guy’s Beaujolais Villages “Marylou” is sourced from the Saint Joseph and Grand Cras subzones of the appellation, about 500 meters from his Morgon vines. The wine is named after Marylou, Guy Breton’s daughter.Vineyards are farmed organically, vinification begins with carbonic maceration at low temperatures, only indigenous yeasts are used, fermentation in cement tank lasts 15 to 21 days, grapes are crushed in an old wooden press, malolactic fermentation takes place in barrel and rests for 6-8 months, wines are aged on fine lees in Burgundian barrels (of at least the third passage), wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered.
Breton’s wines open up beautifully with time, although that might not be evident when tasting them young.
WINEMAKING: hand-picked, fruit is detemmed and mildly crushed, fermentation and maceration occurs over 50 days and the wine is pressed to large format french oak for malo and maturation (10 months). 2,052 bottles produced.
This wine has lovely elegant fruit, it's a fine wine, not in your face, it has subtlety. The Shiraz fruit comes from 105 year old vines. It's aged in old oak and concrete.
Deep ruby-red in colour with vibrant aromas of redcurrant and blackberries, elegantly combined with mild notes of white pepper. Medium-bodied on the palate with silky ripe tannins and a long, broad finish. An elegant wine that is easy to drink.
