A vintage of both quantity and quality, the 1959's from Burgundy with their deep colour and rich fruit are exceptional drinking at 55 years of age!
It is a vintage I like a lot and one that seldom disappoints.
Some time ago we purchased two original cases of 1959 Burgundy from Corton and Nuits-St-Georges. Both communes are known for their ability to age for many decades, no doubt a result of their tannin structure.
This is a rare opportunity to purchase serious old Burgundy from a great vintage. Be quick, these wines will not last.
