2002 Beaune 1er Cru Les Greves direct from the domaine's dark and cold cellars
Last few bottles from our museum stock
Beaune 1er Cru Greves is the best vineyard in the commune. It produces wines that are rich, structured and very long lived. From a top year they are wines that can age 20, 30, 40 or even 50 years.
2002 is a great vintage. I also like Les Greves a lot. It produces serious wines and I have consumed bottles from the 1940's that are exceptional (both red and white).
Domaine Doudet has changed hands and the price of aged Burgundy from their cellars, where it is still available, has risen dramatically. These are the last bottles from our purchase some time ago that were held in reserve. Those who act quickly can grab a few bottles of 13-year-old Burgundy, direct from the cellars, at a price that would be great value if it was the 2013 vintage!
Doudet-Naudin Beaune 1er Cru Les Greves 2002
Very limited $89.95
Brilliant, vibrant red-black. If one did not know the age of the wine you could easily be thinking 2010. It looks that fresh. Cool, tight, dark nose oozing with minerality. Black fruits, a hint of liquorice, cassis and violet. Masses of extract.
Fresh and very mineral in the mouth. Intense, concentrated, structured and very long on the palate. Deep and brooding with fine grained tannins driving the finish.
This is one serious and extremely age-worthy bottle of Beaune.
Sourced direct from the domaine's cellars this wine is ridiculously cheap. It is priced at less than you could buy a bottle of 2013 Beaune 1er Cru Les Greves. Buy a case and leave it in the cellar for a decade or more. Those of you who have been receiving my emails for some time will know I don't recommend wines this highly all that often.
