Guy Breton is part of the Beaujolais “gang” of traditionalist growers and winemakers seeking to craft pure and organic wines that convey the unique terroir in Beaujolais. Breton’s domaine is a tiny three hectares; a percent of which lies in the appellation of Morgon. The vines range in age from 8 to 80 years. The naturally low pH of the soil in which the vines grow makes for favourable conditions to practice sulfur free vinification.
The grapes for the Régnié are sourced from the hills between the Côte de Brouilly and the Côte du Py of Morgon, around the village of Régnié-Durette. Guy’s grandfather handed down the two parcels that go into this wine: one with 100-year-old Gamay vines and the other with 35-year-old vines. The shallow soil of sand and decomposing stones gives the vines easy access to the bedrock, creating firm wines with more grip and acidity than in Morgon.
