    Glossary

  "Guy Breton is one of Marcel’s (LaPierre) drinking buddies. Because of my profession I have had to artake in a few of their let-the-Morgon-flow parties. Breton says he doesn’t care what anybody else thinks of his wine. He is just going to make a wine that
he likes to drink...Expect pure, bright fruit  and a silken texture as it descends.
"---Kermit Lynch, Importer.

Breton is (rightfully) becoming something of a regional star, and not only do his wines command a respectable price, he also makes a statement about its appellation’s potential with a 2009 Regnie that costs as much as his wine from across the line in Morgon. From tank, this boasted vivid, bright red raspberry and cherry, with (for Breton typical) low-sulfur seeming to accentuate the purity of fruit and encourage a caressing texture without sacrificing any sense of refreshment. Almond and pistachio extract; brown spices, bittersweet inner-mouth iris florality, and invigorating salinity add allure. The sense of richness no doubt comes with fairly high alcohol (Breton was not present when I tasted, and I did not have chance to inquire about the level of this or his corresponding Morgon) but there is neither heat nor roughness. This should be a beauty in bottle, but like any Breton wine should be cellared watchfully and only if your conditions are ideal.
