Bourgogne Haute Côte-de-Nuits, Domaine Aurélien Verdet, 2017
Domaine Aurélien Verdet, Arcenant (Organic)
Aurélien Verdet is an incredibly enthusiastic and driven young vigneron whose father was one of the pioneers of organic viticulture in the early 1970's. Aurélien carried on the tradition following his father's retirement in 2005. His Domaine now comprises holdings in the Hautes Côtes de Nuits, Vosne Romanée villages, 1er Cru Beaux Monts, 1er Cru Nuits Damodes and Boudots all of which is organically certified. Aurélian's passion is in the vineyards, which are meticulously tended to produce the highest quality fruit. His approach in the cellar is one of minimal intervention with the use of very small amounts of sulphur.
A fresh, lively red, with pure cherry, floral and spice aromas and flavors set against firm yet fine-grained tannins. Nicely balanced, this lingers with oak spice shadings.
Grape: 100% Pinot Noir
