Stephane Aviron Cote de Brouilly Vieilles Vignes 2013

SKU 52370


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. The Potel Aviron Côte de Brouilly is sourced from two separate vineyards. The first makes up about 75% of the blend and sits in the pour soils facing southwest on the hillside. Vines average 60+ years old. This parcel accounts for the wines depth and structure. The second parcel faces due south with younger vines (40+ years) and contributes ripe juicy fruit to the final blend.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Côte de Brouilly comes from 50-year-old vines and is raised in barrel. It has a light raspberry and wild strawberry nose with touches of cold granite underneath. The palate is rounded in the mouth with juicy, ripe tannin, well-judged acidity and a pleasing, caressing finish that slips down the throat with ease. Lovely.
