A rising star estate in Burgundy, with a meteoric accession, too—Domaine Aurélien Verdet has achieved in 11 years what few producers do in 50. Verdet’s awesome “Les Beaux Monts” is a special treat for Burgundy lovers whether to drink now or ferret away for future events to come.

Aurélien’s father was one of the pioneers of the biodynamic/organic movement in Burgundy in the 60s and 70s. Young Aurélien has taken over the domain and recently built in new winery in his Acrenant. All of the wines are organically grown. Aurélien says nothing is done by rote. Everything is done by feel, by taste, by intuition, by the phases of the moon and as the wines from each parcel and from each vintage demand.
