Can you hear that in the distance?

The Burghounds are howling for something they crave.

And we’ve got something special that’s sure to help them catch the scent.

2019 Burgundy was stellar. Very stellar. And coming oft the wheel of the tremendous 2018 vintage, 2019 brought more intensity, more energy, more acidity, and more of, well, EVERYTHING!

And this scarlet jewel from Aurelien Verdet and his wine from the hills of the Cotes de Nuits is one you’re gonna want for your collection if seeking old groovy, old-world deliciousness is your thing.

To take things a little deeper, Aurelien’s father was one of the pioneers of Burgundy’s biodynamic movement. The 60s and 70s brought new ideas and new vision, and this family was one the forefront of that change that has now proved to be instrumental in the evolution of the region. Since then, Aurélien has taken over the reigns, and through meticulous vineyard work which includes organic farming, his handcrafted approach moves by feel, taste, and the phases of the moon. Each parcel demands different attention, and he does everything needed to get the most out of every single berry.

The Hautes Cotes de Nuits is tucked into the western hills of Burgundy. This area was never revered, and in fact, was somewhat of an afterthought. But times have changed, weather has warmed, and regions that were once forgotten have now become a place that Burgundy enthusiasts seek out.

An array of spiced red fruits dance out of the glass, as raspberries, currants, and pomegranates meld with rose petals, cocoa nibs, crushed stones and hints of clay lead into a succulent and opulent palate full of fruit, spice and everything nice. Elegant as the day is long, this is perfect Burgundy for those who crave complexity in the glass and value at checkout.

Speaking of check out… have you scooped up any yet? 

Act quickly ‘cuz those Burghounds are on the scent and they’re gonna beat you to it. 

Wine Advocate 

Bursting from the glass with notes of sweet berries, petals, peonies and raw cocoa, the 2019 Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Nuits Le Prieuré is medium to full-bodied, velvety and charming, with lively acids, melting tannins and a succulent, spice-inflected finish. Deeper than the 2017 and more elegant than the 2018, this gets my nod as the finest Le Prieuré of the three.
