Dark black cherry color with purple. Deep, ripe aromas of black cherry with a hint of black pepper. Very good weight; fleshy and round, very soft and harmonious. Delicious now or could be kept a few years.

"Aviron's 2017 Chénas Vieilles Vignes is showing beautifully, unfurling in the glass with a lavish bouquet of cherries, strawberries and red fruit compote. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, velvety and enveloping, with a fleshy core of fruit, ripe acids and powdery, largely concealed tannins. This is an expressive, charming Chénas that's already hard to resist." - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate, 08/19 92 pts.
