Amazing 2015's from Stephan Aviron
The Amazing 2015's from Stephane Aviron:
I was lucky enough to tast through these wines with Stephane this past February and have been eagerly awaiting their arrival. Well the wait is finally over.
2015 Stephane Aviron Beaujolais Villages...$12.99
The Stéphane Aviron Beaujolais Villages is sourced from 50+ year-old vines in a lieu-dit named “Les Monthieux,” located in the commune of Lantignie, considered the finest in Beaujolais villages. The terroir is composed of clay and limestone soils with a favorable southwest exposure.
2015 Stephane Aviron Morgon Cote du Py....$19.99
Produced from old vines in the Côte du Py on the slopes of an extinct volcano, this cru wine is structured with generous black fruits and a series of ripe tannins and balanced acidity. It has the structure and density to age while also having a light touch of black cherry fruit.
Rated 93/100 The Wine Enthusiast
2015 Stephane Aviron Moulin A Vent....$19.99
A firm and structured cru wine from 100-year-old vines that has layers of firm fruits and tannins. It is a wine that is likely to mature well, with its wood aging and dry core. A blend from four parcels, it is concentrated and with a rich black-cherry character.

2015 Stephane Aviron Fleurie Domaine Madriere....$19.99
This wine is packed with cheerful red fruits that are given a more serious edge by the tannic structure and acidity,. With its touch of pepper and minerality, it will age well over the next two years. The cru wine comes from a family-owned property on steep slopes.
