"Pungent and expressive, sporting macerated cherry, boysenberry, violet and spice notes. Firms up, turning more linear in profile on the long finish. Best from 2018 through 2028. 75 cases imported."

Product Description:

"Aurélien Verdet is an enthusiastic , driven young man . His father was one of the pioneers of organic viticulture back in the early 1970’s and since his retirement in 2005 , Aurélien has carried on the tradition . Aurélien’s own Domaine comprised 4.5 hectares of Hautes Côtes de Nuits until 2009. In that year , he took over vines under a farming agreement in Vosne Romanée village and 1er cru Beaux Monts and 1er cru Nuits Les Damodes and Boudots. This entitled him to call them Domaine holdings.

0.3 hectares planted in the 1960’s. This 1er Cru lies at the top of the slope, in northern Nuits St Georges just before Vosne Romanée. The wines from the north side of the village, towards Vosne-Romanée are distinctly different in character than those from the southern vineyards. The northern vineyards, on the other side of the river Meuzin, have more in common with those of Vosne Romanée. The vineyards are composed of pebbles and limestone, and the wines have more of the finesse and elegance of Vosne, but with the structure of Nuits St. Georges." -Importer
