Aurelien Verdet Hautes Cotes de Nuits Rouge le Prieure 2009
Aurélien Verdet is a young vigneron based at Arcenant in the Hautes Côtes de Nuits. Despite only being in his late 20s, Aurélien makes elegant, sophisticated wines that show a mature considered approach.Aurélien is the son of Alain Verdet, a pioneer of organic viticulture in Burgundy. Complementing this background is his work with David Duband. Both have clearly had a strong influence.Haut Cotes de Nuits comes from the villages behind the Cote de Beaune and while it will never be confused with a premier cru from Beaune it does provide a rewarding glass of burgundy. Delicious fruit in a lighter more feminine style.
