Nuits-St-Georges, Domaine Aurélien Verdet 2017
Domaine Aurélien Verdet, Arcenant
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.
Certified Biodynamic, Verdet crafts complex and no-compromise wines from some of Côte-de-Nuits' finest sites. These are must-try wines for Burg enthusiasts and those looking to discover the region's true gems. Also planted in the 1960s, this vineyard is just below Les Damodes. It is distinctive for its ethereal, violet perfume on the nose and finish. The palate is elegant, yet dense.
