A Brilliant lineup of Grand Cru Burgundy spanning a century!
It has been quite some time our last Rare Wine Dinner. So to get 2015 off to a great start we have, what I feel is, our best ever lineup of great old Burgundy.
We'll start with a bracket of old White Burgundy, the likes of which are almost never seen. The Seguin-Manuel wines came onto the market a decade or so ago and I understand they were hidden away for decades. It will be fascinating to taste a dry white that is a century old.
The first bracket of reds all come from the commune of Gevrey-Chambertin. They are not mere Grand Crus - they are all the majestic Le Chambertin.
Bracket 3 comprises five aromatic reds - 3 from Romanee-St-Vivant and 2 from Musigny. Aged wines at this level are rarely seen.
We'll finish with a pair of old Rayne-Vigneau Sauternes and then 1935 Croft Vintage Port.
These are once-in-a-lifetime wines! There will be a maximum of 12 seats including myself for this dinner so everyone gets a good glass of each wine to drink.
