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.

This light-bodied red offers glazed raspberry, orange peel and currant notes beaming across the palate, with hints of herb, cherry and mineral lingering into the lightly tannic finish. Drink now through 2020.
