2018 Guy Breton Beaujolais Village Marylou (750ml)

Gamay from Beaujolais-Villages, Beaujolais, France


Vivid magenta. Expressive red/blue fruit aromas are complemented by suggestions of candied flowers, smoky minerals and baking spices. Juicy and expansive on the palate, offering intense black raspberry and boysenberry flavors that tighten up slowly on the back half. Finishes long and smooth, showing excellent clarity, well-knit tannins and resonating floral and mineral character.

From vines in Quincié and named after Breton's daughter, the 2018 Beaujolais-Villages Cuvée Marylou reveals a lovely bouquet of cherries, citrus zest and strawberries. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, supple and melting, with a lively, mouthwatering profile. At a mere 11.5% alcohol, it's eminently drinkable.

A super light color and very light, fragrant strawberries on offer with a gently flinty edge. The palate follows suit with a crisp, fresh and light core of strawberries. Really fresh, smooth and supple. Drink now.
