An Extraordinary Collection of Back Vintages from Savigny-le-Beaune

Savigny Back Vintages
An Extraordinary Range of Back Vintages direct from the Domaine's Cellars - Great Vintages Galore - including 2002, 2001, 1999 and even 1971, 1969 and 1966!


Savigny-les-Beaune is an interesting area. Once considered the poor cousin of Beaune, things began to change in the 1980's when the prices for the Hospices de Beaune Savigny cuvees outstripped those from Beaune.


There are a number of things I particularly like about Savigny-les-Beaune. One is the mineral line that runs through the wines creating a freshness and vibrancy that isn't always seen in Beaune itself. The acid ensures serious ageing potential and I have seen numerous Savigny reds at 30-50 years of age that still drink incredibly well.


Then we have price. In most cases the wines of Savigny-les-Beaune represent tremendous value. The commune is rich in Premier Crus and the prices for these wines is on a small amount above Villages prices. There is serious value across the board. (The one exception is Domaine Leroy whose Savigny Narbantons from recent years sells for over $1000.00 in Australia! Go figure!).


Doudet Savigny Guettes Our friends at Doudet-Naudin have been an exceptional source for aged Burgundy. The cellars were stocked over the decades so the business could service fine restaurants with perfectly aged wine. 


Amongst our last container was a box of samples that included a bottle of 2002 Savigny-les-Beaune Petits Liards, a Villages wines. I tasted the wine one evening and was amazed at how fresh and lively the wine was. It was nothing short of exceptional. So I contacted the domaine to see if they had any left. The sad answer was no but they did supply me with a tremendous selection of other Savigny-les-Beaune Red cuvees from their cellar going back to 1966! All of the wines have been stored in the domaine's cellars since bottling. They are as fresh as could be.


I have not sampled many of the wines but based on tastings of wines from the cellars back to the 1920's you can buy with great confidence.


With stocks of aged Red Burgundy becoming very difficult to find this offer is very special. Some wines are available in good quantities, others are down to the last case or less. Most of the great vintages of recent decades are represented including 2002, 2001, 1999, 1969 and 1966.

Grand Cru Dinner


Grand Cru Burgundy Dinner at Ezard

Wednesday 29 October 2014

2 Seats Left 


Have you ever wanted to try a line-up of Grand Cru Burgundies?


Well here is your chance.

On 29 October we will provide our clients with a rare opportunity to enjoy 10 different Grand Crus - one from each of the communes producing this top echelon of Burgundy (well, two from Corton as they produce White and Red Grand Crus).

This very special dinner will start with a trio of 2012 White Burgundies from Corton, Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet and then move along to 7 different communes producing Red Grand Crus including the outstanding and very expensive Richebourg from Domaine Anne Gros.

This is certainly a rare opportunity to taste and compare some outstanding and valuable wines.

We have chosen Ezard as the venue for this dinner. Ezard has 2 Hats in the Age Good Food Guide and is one of Melbourne's great fine dining restaurants. The superb food and service will match the wines and ensure this is a very memorable evening.

We will start with canapes accompanied Drappier Champagne, followed by three courses showcasing the 10 Grand Crus.
