Terroir: 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.
Vinification: Whole clusters of grapes are fermented, and then macerated for six days to extract characters of fruit and finesse. The wine is aged in old, non-reactive 50-hectoliter puncheons with no barrel aging so as not to introduce any overt oak aromas or flavors that may otherwise interfere with the purity of the fresh fruit. The wine shows great finesse, elegance and a very “easy drinking” nature.
This big-shouldered Beaujolais is typical of the quality. Rich in tannins, firm acidity and sweet strawberry fruit.
