Stephane Aviron Morgon Cote du Py Vieilles Vignes 2015
|Region||France, Beaujolais, Morgon|
Historically considered “poor man’s Burgundy,” a modern movement toward fruity, simple, quaffing wines boosted sales but eroded the region’s traditional quality. Stephane Aviron has reversed the trend. By focusing on the Beaujolais village crus, the best sites for unique, expressive wines, and finding old parcels of vines, Aviron creates very expressive, age-worthy wines relying on traditional and new methods, including organic and biodynamic vineyard management. All wines are labeled “Vieilles Vignes,” old vines, because the vines are at least 40 years old. Stephane Aviron’s wines are authentic in every way.
The Côte du Py, one of the best cru vineyard sites in Beaujolais, is on the slope of a 3,000-foot extinct volcano. It produces structured wines that can age well. Stéphane Aviron brought out the quality of Py with a wine that is powerful, ripe and dense with considerable tannic structure. It will certainly need to age, so drink from 2019.
"Dark ruby. Bright and energetic on the nose and the palate, displaying intense red fruit and floral pastille qualities and a hint of smoky minerality. Sappy and precise, picking up hints of licorice and succulent herbs as the wine opens up. Dusty tannins build slowly on a very long, penetrating finish that emphatically echoes the mineral note."
"Floral and peach aromas line the ripe strawberry and cherry flavors in this concentrated, harmonious red. Backed by plenty of spice and juicy acidity, this eases into a lingering, spice- and mineral-infused finish. Drink now through 2018."
