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

2020 Aurelien Verdet, Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru, Aux Boudots 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! 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 Domaine Lecheneaut, Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru, Les Damodes 12x75cl

Offered by Mr.Wheeler for only the third vintage and one of the most exciting recent additions to our portfolio, Philippe and Vincent Lécheneaut’s ten-hectare estate in Nuits-St-Georges was... created by their father, Fernand Lécheneaut in the 1980s. An extensive range of the finest villages of the Côte de Nuits is produced here; we have picked what we think are the best in 2020 - perfect expressions of pinot noir – rich, sumptuous and elegant, these are modern wines made with minimum intervention that combine purity of fruit with stunning terroir expression. Les Damodes is undoubtedly among the best, most consistently performing premier crus in our portfolio. Here, the 2020 is a beautifully structured yet velvety red burgundy, with sublime, lifted aromatics, plenty of floral notes to accompany the ripe fruit, and a minerally finish. It's supreme value, too, offering an upper echelon of Burgundian class at a remarkably approachable price point.

2020 Domaine Lecheneaut, Bourgogne, Pinot Noir 12x75cl

"From below Nuits, aged in older barrels. Incredibly concentrated purple despite 30% whole bunch. This Bourgogne has a powerful bouquet of dark raspberry fruit, but not heavy and not over ripe. A... gorgeous succulence of fruit with fine acidity. This has concentration at the back, a sturdy and serious Bourgogne.” Jasper Morris MW,
