It’s no coincidence that numerous up-and-coming Beaujolais vignerons, as well as more established ones like Camille and Mathieu Lapierre, called on Guy Breton for advice while vinfying their 2018s. Not only is P’tit Max (as he is known) at the very top of his game, crafting wines of unparalleled purity and finesse, but his extensive experience with low-intervention winemaking makes him a go-to source for anyone seeking wisdom on the subject. His philosophy has not changed much since his debuts, when Camille and Mathieu’s father, Marcel, took him under his wing: Max starts with old vines in great sites, farms them without herbicides, ferments whole-cluster without chaptalization or selected yeasts, and bottles unfiltered with minimal effective sulfur. His gorgeously perfumed, supremely silky and sensual 2018 Morgon demonstrates why he has become the point of reference for Beaujolais producers and consumers alike.
