Morgon Guy Breton Beaujolais
Guy Breton is one of the famed 'Gang of Four' (Guy Breton, Jean Paul Thévenet, Marcel Lapierre and Jean Foillard) in one of our all time favourite regions of Beaujolais. Eschewing the commercial techniques that became prevalent in Beaujolais, 'The Gang' went back to traditional 'natural' methods in the vineyard and winery. These wines speak of their place and come from old vines, with minimal intervention - there's no make-up or plastic surgery here. Notes of red and dark fruits, violets and cranberry with sweet spice aromas. Packed full of vibrancy and energy on the palate with supreme drinkability and utter-moreishness.
Our house wine selection has been curated by Alistair Cooper, Master of Wine. We're big believers that the importance of great wine when it comes to great cheese cannot be understated, and as such have selected these wines after hours and hours of scrutiny (and fun), to be all rounders for pairing with our cheese.
