An Aged Premier Cru Burgundy from the great 1999 vintage at 2015 prices!
My trip to Burgundy at the end of last year turned up some wonderful aged wines from Doudet-Naudin.

From an extensive tasting I selected 4 Reds and 1 White from the great vintages of 1999, 2001 and 2002. Today I present the Savigny-les-Beaune 1er Cru Les Serpentieres from 1999.

Some say this vineyard was named after snakes that once inhabited the site but it appears more likely that the name refers to the twisting boundaries between holdings. 

These bottles have never left the domaine's cellars (prior to being shipped to Australia earlier this year) so are in immaculate condition. I opened a bottle last Friday evening and blown away with the depth of colour and freshness of this wine. Savigny is highly regarded in France as a wine that ages extremely well and Les Serpentieres in particular is known as a vineyard capable of producing wines with real length and power. Combine that with 1999 and it is not surprising this is a special wine.

Perhaps best of all you can buy this 18 year old wine, which is drinking magnificently, for the price of the current vintage. Go figure!

Doudet Serpentieres
Darren Harris: Vibrant red. No browning. Freshly cut rose, liquorice, with an underlying note of orange zest. A hint of clean forest floor. Superbly integrated. Layered, and beautifully textured. Palate coating. Stony and cool with vibrant acidity. The word fresh keeps coming to mind. it is hard to imagine this wine is now 18 years old.

Doudet Perthuisots Label
15 Year Old White Burgundy
Drinking Wonderfully!
Aged white Burgundy was once one of the great pleasures of the wine world. But alas, as we all know, it is not easy to find decade old whites still in perfect condition.
At my tasting at Doudet-Naudin late last year I tried the 2002 Beaune 1er Cru Perthuisots Blanc and was knocked out with its freshness and character. 2002 was one of the stars of the 2000's and describes the vintage as "cool and quite classic". The best wines have aged beautifully.
This wine is remarkable value.
Darren Harris:
Apart from Clos de Mouches we do not see many whites from Beaune. However, the commune is very capable of producing long-lived whites that develop serious complexity. This is one example! Quite pale colour. Intense nose displaying crème brulee with some citrus and flowers. The palate is rich and round, but not fat - it is underpinned by good acidity. Fresh! Really rather complex and drinking beautifully. Not a trace of premature ageing. 2002 was a highly lauded vintage for white Burgundy. Unfortunately in Australia we see far too many premoxed whites. This Beaune 1er Cru is fresh and very interesting. Try it. Aged white Burgundy as it should be!
