Terroir: Fleurie is one of the top crus in Beaujolais producing wines of deep fruit and great structure. Stéphane Aviron’s Fleurie is sourced from a family owned hillside vineyard on the western side of the appellation. Exposure on these steep slopes face south and southeast with soils of loose clay and limestone.
Vinification: Grapes are handpicked and sorted upon arrival at the winery. The must is macerated in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats for 12-15 days and then aged for 12-14 months in a combination of new and one-or-two-year old barriques.
A true Burgundy in many ways. This Fleurie shows very similar characteristics to a fine Moulin a Vent with loads of ripe jammy fruit and rich, structured tannins. This is a truly age-worthy Beaujolais.
