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.

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.

2020 Aurelien Verdet, Morey-Saint-Denis Premier Cru, Monts Luisants 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”.

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.
