Stephane Aviron Beaujolais Village 2014
2014 Stephane Aviron Stephane Beaujolais Village is very bright and able, and a good taster. He owns Domaine de la Madrière in Fleurie, a bottling business and has a négociant company in which he has Nicolas Potel for a partner. This Beaujolais-Villages is a wine from his négociant company, bought as wine.
Stephane Aviron has adopted an almost radical return to tradition in Beaujolais: sustainable viticulture, extremely old vines and classic Burgundian techniques. His cru Beaujolais drink like fine Burgundy. 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.
