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.

The appellation of Côte de Brouilly sits on the high slopes of the extinct volcano Mont Brouilly and is surrounded by the larger appellation of Brouilly.  This wine has Finesse, elegance it shows loads of rich red and dark berry fruit, spice notes, and avery good concentration. It has a soft texture with a touch of spice.

We recommend to pair Aviron's Côtes de Brouilly with mushroom risotto, rabbit or cheese.

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.

Press Reviews

Wine Align

90 points - John Szabo, MS

Drinking really well now, more open and fruity than the Fleurie, showing a touch of old wood. Fine structure, fine-grained tannins. An explosion of fruit with a streak of granite. Tasted November 2019.

Lurid ruby. Ripe raspberry, cherry liqueur and candied flowers on the perfumed, spice-accented nose. Supple, sweet and broad on the palate, offering pliant red fruit and spicecake flavors that deepen as the wine stretches out. In a plush, seamless style, delivering strong fruity thrust and a hint of mocha on the long, gently tannic finish.
