2020 Aurelien Verdet, Morey-Saint-Denis 6x75cl

From his modest winery hidden off the beaten track in the little village of Arcenant in the Hautes Côtes de Nuits, Aurélien Verdet crafts wines of astonishing purity and precision. A highly... talented young winemaker whose following is growing steadily every year, Aurélien is no exception to the adage that “Great wine is created in the vineyard”. Indeed, he lavishes great care and attention on his 5.5 ha of vines, which he farms organically to produce fruit of superb quality. The winemaking is then all about respecting that fruit to bring the terroir through, which he does with great aplomb. A rising star to watch! Wonderfully expressive with notes of violets and white pepper, Aurélien's is a characterful, full-bodied and powerful Morey Villages. The warm conditions yielded a lovely opulence to the fruit, and it shows the typical spicy element one can expect of this commune's wines, with added aromatic flourish courtesy of Aurélien's careful winemaking. A very fine villages cuvée.

2021 Aurelien Verdet, Morey-Saint-Denis Premier Cru, Monts Luisants 6x75cl

"Lovely juicy core of fruit, dense and powerful with broad shoulders and an understated yet firm structure, this is a broad-shouldered Morey St Denis from the rare 1er Cru Aux Monts Luisants vineyard... in Morey-St-Denis which boasts a superb position just above and as an enclave within the lauded Clos de la Roche Grand Cru. Spicy yet with a delicious core of juicy rich fruit, a lverlvety texture and a long, multi-layered finish, this is a very pleasant and complex 1er Cru." (Mr.Wheeler tasting note)

Reflecting brilliantly why Aurélien Verdet is so highly regrded in the region, his Côte de Nuits Village La Prêtière offers supreme drinking pleasure with a deep and bright aromatic intensity allied to bold and expansive, pure black berry flavours. Like a "concentrate" of pinot noir, this cuvée is completed with lively freshness, structure and elegantly pure tannins.

2019 Aurelien Verdet, Vosne-Romanee Premier Cru, Les Beaux Monts 6x75cl

From one of Vosne's star terroirs, Aurelien's 1er Cru Les Boudots is a neighbouring site to Echézeaux Grand Cru. An exceptional, lifted and perfumed nose offers an aromatic precision which belies... the wine's deep and expansive power-house structure. Deep, almost hedonistic notions of sweet dark cherry and aromatic festive spice, mocha and gunsmoke lead to a palate of bold and intense liqueur-like black cherry richness, the wine for all its breadth and texture never once loses its precision and control. Expansive and intense, this is utterly effortless pinot noir. - Mr.Wheeler tasting note

2019 Aurelien Verdet, Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru, Aux Boudots 6x75cl

The Boudots vineyard neighbours the famous Vosne-Romanée Malconsorts vineyard, and produces some of the very finest, ageworthy wines in Nuits, with the typical Nuits dark fruit, power and structure... meeting the velvety texture and floral perfume of Vosne. A very complete wine, dark, mineral with impressive length, always one of the most exciting cuvées in our range. - Mr.Wheeler tasting note

2019 Aurelien Verdet, Morey-Saint-Denis, 1er Cru Aux Monts Luisants 6x75cl

"An even purple throughout, pleasing bouquet and a charming sweet fruit through the middle, elegance all the way, but without quite the depth of Aurélien Verdet’s other 1ers crus." Jasper Morris MW, 03/2021

A highly... talented young winemaker whose following is growing steadily every year, Aurélien is no exception to the adage that “Great wine is created in the vineyard”.

The winemaking is then all about respecting that fruit to bring the terroir through, which he does with great aplomb. A rising star to watch! Over the past few years we have been waxing lyrical about those Nuits 1er Cru vineyards abutting to Vosne-Romanée (in this case, the famous Les Malconsorts) and the sublime balance of structured power, black-fruited intensity on one hand, and the velvety texture and lifted aromatics usually associated with Vosne. Aurélien's Les Boudots once again shows off this brilliant combination with its muscular tannins, brilliant energy and polished edges.

2020 Aurelien Verdet, Vosne-Romanee, Vieilles Vignes 6x75cl

Once again Aurélien demonstrates his superb understanding of terroirs, and handles the fruit in such a way as to produce a textbook Vosne, all velvet, raspberry coulis and white chocolate. There is excellent structure here, and it is built to age gracefully for the next decade easily.

The winemaking is then all about respecting that fruit to bring the terroir through, which he does with great aplomb. A rising star to watch! Just above Clos de la Roche (with a significant chunk included in the Grand Cru vineyard), les Monts Luisants benefits from a very impressive terroir. And there is no doubt that "impressive" doesn't begin to faithfully describe this cuvée. It is, quite simply, pure dynamite - bursting with flavour, super rich, and it keeps on delivering layer upon layer of flavour - fruit, spice, savoury notes, umami on this finish. Mind-blowing.
