Domaine Aurelien Verdet - Hautes-Côtes de Nuits 'Le Prieure' 2019


The vibrancy of Aurélien Verdet’s wines reflects his personal passion and commitment to organic winemaking. As the third generation of his family to grow grapes in Burgundy, his approach reflects an inherited conscience from his father, Alain, who was a pioneer in organic viticulture and winemaking. Continuing the commitment to sustainable and organic practices, his wines capture the authenticity of their terroir and deliver purity, finesses and elegance. From his villages wines to his premiers crus wines, Aurélien captures the distinctive flavors of origin with lively fruit expression, bright acids and fine tannins. The wines are made in a style that is both accessible when young, yet will age gracefully for years. From Verdet’s estate of 1.2 acres.

'Bursting from the glass with notes of sweet berries, petals, peonies and raw cocoa, the 2019 Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Nuits Le Prieuré is medium to full-bodied, velvety and charming, with lively acids, melting tannins and a succulent, spice-inflected finish. Deeper than the 2017 and more elegant than the 2018, this gets my nod as the finest Le Prieuré of the three.' - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
