Floral & Fresh

Stéphane Aviron can be considered a pioneer is his approach to winemaking in Beaujolais, however he would just tell you that he’s simply returning to the traditional practices that have always made fantastic Gamay wines. Sustainable viticulture, extremely old vines and classic Burgundian techniques.

Situated in the north of the Beaujolais region, Moulin-à-Vent is one of the most famous crus and named after the local windmill – the literal translation of the name. This wine has expressive black cherry aromas and firm structure in the mouth. Its mineral underpinning and firm but ripe tannins help it age perhaps longer than any of the Beaujolais crus.

We recommend to pair Aviron's Moulin à Vent with mushroom risotto, rabbit or cheese.

This product is part of the LCBO Vintages program. It may take approximately 3-4 weeks to be delivered.

About the Winery

Stéphane Aviron

Stéphane Aviron can be considered a pioneer in his approach to winemaking in Beaujolais, however he would just tell you that he’s simply returning to the traditional practices that have always made fantastic Gamay wines. Sustainable viticulture, extremely old vines and classic Burgundian techniques. He focuses on the Beaujolais village crus, all but forgotten gems of vineyards when the nouveau craze took over, which are the best sites for unique, expressive and terroir driven wines. All of the fruit is sourced from old vines (40+ years), so seeing Vieilles Vignes on the label is a rite of passage, not a privilege. Authenticity and a distinctly Beaujolais style of winemaking is what sets Stéphane apart from the rest.

90 Points - John Szabo

2018 is a dense and ripe vintage for Aviron's Moulin-à -Vent, reaching into the damson plum and black cherry spectrum, with some hibiscus spice. The palate is nonetheless juicy and lively, with fine, ripe, supple but abundant tannins, firm acids and substantial weight in the category. I'd suggest another couple of years in the cellar for this to really deliver it's maximum. Will be a very tidy value with lots of complexity for your dollar. Tasted September 2020.
