Beaujolais Villages Burgundy by Stephane Aviron 2016
Beaujolais Villages Burgundy 2016 – a value-driven red Burgundy – is produced by Stephane Aviron.
Stéphane Aviron can be considered a pioneer is his approach to winemaking in Beaujolais, however he would just tell you that he’s simply returning to the traditional practices that have always made fantastic Gamay wines. Sustainable viticulture, extremely old vines and classic Burgundian techniques. He focuses on the Beaujolais village crus, all but forgotten gems of vineyards when the nouveau craze took over, which are the best sites for unique, expressive and terroir driven wines.
Seeing Vieilles Vignes on the label is a right of passage, not a privilege. Authenticity and a distinctly Beaujolais style of winemaking is what sets Stéphane apart from the competition.
Beaujolais Villages Burgundy by Stephane Aviron 2016: Characteristics
100% Gamay sourced from 50+ year old vines in the lieu-dit of ‘Les Monthieux’. This light, elegant Beaujolais Villages drinks above its price point owing to the complexity of fruit and minerality from the old vines. Whole cluster fermentation and a six-day maceration extract intense fruit flavours while maintaining overall finesse. The wine is then aged in inert oak so as not to impact the freshness of the wine with any overt oak aromas and it’s farmed biodynamically.
