2020 Morgon P'Tit Max, Guy Breton

This is Guy Breton’s top cuvée, and is given his nickname, P’tit Max, which he has been called since childhood after his father. The wine comes from a parcel of low yielding 130-year-old vines. He says that rather than being bigger or oakier than the rest of his wines (as top cuvées at other addresses can be), it instead has a level of finesse that sets it apart. This 2020 is so intense, with juicy finesse and perfectly formed silky tannins. There is mineral depth to the fruit, and the wine already tastes delicious at this early stage. A tasting of the 2009 alongside it convinced me further of this wine’s brilliant ageing potential. Don’t be afraid to cellar this with confidence.
