Stephane Aviron Fleurie Domaine De La Madrière 2015
Wine EnthusiastThis wine is packed with cheerful red fruits that are given a more serious edge by the tannic structure and acidity,. With its touch of pepper and minerality, it will age well over the next two years. The cru wine comes from a family-owned property on steep slopes.
Wine SpectatorThis 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. 180 cases imported.
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Fleurie Vieilles Vignes Domaine de la Madriere felt a little stilted next to the Brouilly, not quite as cohesive as I was expecting. The palate is fresh on the entry with light tannin, showing more cohesion on the finish that needs more weight. I just feel this is misfiring when compared to Aviron's other 2015s.
