Stephane Aviron Stephane Aviron Cote De Brouilly Vieilles Vignes 2014 750ML 2014
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.
Wine SpectatorA bright, light-bodied red, with aromatic herb, wild strawberry and currant flavors. Hints of smoke show on the crisp, tangy finish. Drink now. 200 cases imported.
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Côte de Brouilly Vieilles Vignes has more composure than the Morgon Côte du Py although I did discern a little brettanomyces here subduing the fruit. The palate is sweet on the entry with soft red berry fruit, moderate acidity but it feels a little smudged towards the finish. Again, I was expecting a little more from this wine in this vintage.
