A past Wine Access story about 2013 Domaine Aurelien Verdet Morey-Saint-Denis En la Rue de Vergy Burgundy

Pinot Noir off this 3.7-acre site in Morey-Saint-Denis sits just above the priceless Grand Cru Monopole Clos de Tart.

A Burgundy Lover’s Smartest Buy

We have long encouraged Burgundy lovers to buy smart by jumping on wines grown a stone’s throw from the $300 wines — or in the case of this 2013 Domaine Aurélien Verdet from Morey-St-Denis, the $500 wines. Compared to $70 elsewhere, which is great value in and of itself, at $29.99 per bottle, this “Under the Radar” Burgundy is about as smart a buy as they come.

Jancis Robinson MW, one of the most respected wine critics in the world, listed Verdet on her list of “Under the Radar” Burgundy producers whose “performance is greater than their price level.” We’re in love with the Domaine Verdet Morey-Saint-Denis Rouge from the 92-point 2013 vintage. Not just because the biodynamic wine is made by a rising young winemaker from a pioneering Burgundy lineage who honed his skills under Côte de Nuits Grand Cru master David Duband, but also because Aurélien Verdet’s 3.7 acres in Morey-Saint-Denis sit just above the priceless Grand Cru Monopole Clos de Tart.

Aurélien Verdet’s surname roughly translates to “green,” and it’s right on the money: His father Alain was a major force behind Burgundy’s important biodynamic movement in the 1970s, and Aurélien is ensuring that his dad’s philosophies thrive in the next generation. His viticultural pedigree extends beyond his bloodline, considering the tutelage he received from the acclaimed organic winemaker David Duband. Aurélien has taken the lessons learned from inside and outside the family to create wines that capture the pure essence of Burgundy’s globally coveted terroir.

After the drubbing Mother Nature subjected Burgundy to in 2012, the 92-point 2013 vintage in the Côte de Nuits was quite a relief. This much kinder season enabled Aurélien’s gentle approach to foster a complex and fleshy Burgundy that just sings with the character of his hand-harvested fruit. Domaine Aurélien Verdet is what we love in a Burgundy: under the radar, but well above its modest price point. Secure yours now.

This is what I wrote in Cellar Tracker after opening in the first bottle: "Opened one of these shortly after opening a Willamette rendition of the same varietal. This one is slightly more restrained, a little more oak prominence, slight tannins, moderate acidity, bright cherry fruit, hint of smoke. I approve."
