2017 Stephane Aviron, Moulin-à-Vent Vieilles Vignes, Beaujolais, France (750ml)
|Availability:||In stock (6)|
Produced from extremely old vine Gamay, some over 100 years old, in the prestigious Moulin-a-Vent Cru, Stephane only releases this cuvée in exceptional vintages and in minuscule quantities. Enticing aromas and flavors of black cherry and wild blackberry with accents of licorice, orange zest, and rose petal segue into a gloriously long, dry, elegant finish. Ready to drink now, the complexity, ripeness and fine tannins make this an uncommonly ageworthy Beaujolais that should continue to evolve over the next 5-8 years. Pairs well with a classic Coq au Vin, a duck confit or Humboldt Fog with a layer of ash.
