Two Aged Premier Cru Burgundies from the magnificent 1999 and 2002 vintages direct from the cellars

 

There is nothing like Burgundy aged in the cold, dark cellars of the domaine. The wines are always fresher and more focused than you see anywhere else.

 

The pressures of modern business means very few makers now hold back stock to sell as aged wine.

 

However, one of our producers does. Doudet-Naudin have a history of retaining a portion of each vintage to release at a later date (their old wine stock still goes back to the 1950's). Traditionally it was restaurants that benefited from this program. but we have managed to convince them to let us have some of these wonderful back vintages for our clients.

 

The domaine changed hands a little while ago which has seen some price adjustments. Our wines are just about to ship so we thought we'd give you one last chance to grab some of these back vintages.

 

This offer features two wines - one each from the wonderful 2002 and 1999 vintages. We all know how good those vintages are!

 

Both wines are in pristine condition having never left the cellars. What is even more remarkable is the price. These wines are available at similar or less than what the current vintage would cost.

 

These opportunities do not come along often. If you would like to add some fine aged Burgundy to your cellar at an incredible price I suggest you stock up soon.

 

All wines are available at our usual Pre Arrival Price which is 15% less than the landed price. If you buy by the unbroken case of 12 bottles this discount increases to 20%. 

 

Doudet Perrieres Beaune 1er Cru Les Perrieres 2002

Normal Price $120.00

Pre Arrival Price $99.95

Pre Arrival Price Case of 12 Bottles $1152.00 (=$96.00 a bottle)

 

The name Perrieres comes from the fact that this site was once a quarry. The stony soil produces a mineral wine.

 

Beautifully aromatic nose of ripe red cherry, flowers, a hint of marzipan and cherry pits. A silky, fresh palate, mineral infused, with deliciously succulent flavours over long and fine tannins. Racy but mouthcoating. At the beginning of its drinking window but capable of many more years in the cellar. A really fine example of 1er Beaune from a top vintage.

 

At less than $100 a bottle this is excellent value!

 

Doudet Serpentieres Savigny-les-Beaune 1er Cru Les Serpentieres 1999

Normal Price $120.00

Pre Arrival Price $99.95

Pre Arrival Price Case of 12 Bottles $1152.00 (=$96.00 a bottle)

 

The origin of some vineyard names is lost it time. Serpentieres could relate to the presence of snakes on this site or the snakiness of the rows when viewed from the road. This is a fine site with chalk, stones, gravel and a little clay in the soil.


 

I do not have a tasting note but Serpentieres is noted for its deeply aromatic fruit, typically in the cherry and plum spectrum and its long, elegant, mineral finish. From such a great year as 1999 this should be a real winner.

 

Sourced direct from the domaine's cellars these wines are ridiculously cheap.
