Aurelien Verdet ‘Le Prieure’ Bourgogne Hautes Cote de Nuits 2017

The oak is the first thing that pops up on the nose here. Behind it is a choir of red fruit; the oak contributing nutmeg spice, licorice and a vanilla bean bent to the red and black berries.  Polished and modern. The 4ha Le Prieure vineyard is a monopole (solely owned by the Verdet Estate) and was certified organic under his father’s reign in 1971. The wines from Aurelien Verdet (he himself not yet 40 years old) are delicious, offering a reliably plush, modern and inviting fruit profile.  This wine is no exception and would evaporate at the pre-dinner table if given the opportunity.
