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.

2022 Aurelien Verdet, Bourgogne, Hautes Cotes de Nuits Le Prieure 6x75cl

"The 2022 Bourgogne Routes Cotes de Nuits Le Prieure has an attractive nose of macerated red cherries, crushed strawberry and light sous-bois scents. It just requires a little more intensity. The... palate is a step-up: fine tannins, crisp red fruit, solid focus and a delicate but quite persistent finish. This is well-worth seeking out. Tasted at merchants' 2022 Burgundy tastings in London. " Neal Martin, vinous.com
