The string of small vintages from 2010 to 2016 have created enormous pressure on Burgundian winemakers, particularly those in the south of Burgundy where hail and frost has struck with disturbing regularity.
Many producers have been forced to draw on their reserve stocks and to ensure turnover have priced them at very reasonable prices.
Amongst my samples were two Santenay Villages from Charles Noellat. The wines have come direct from their cellars.
These are not Richebourg or Chambertin in disguise. They are however, perfectly aged wines from fine vintages and are drinking beautifully. Santenay has geological strata similar to the best of the Cote de Nuits and produces wines with staying power and structure. Having lain undisturbed for the best part of twenty years these wines are ready to drink. And they are crazy cheap. Would you age wines for over a decade and then sell them for less than your neighbour's basic wines? I think not.
We offer both the 2000 and 2001 at $39.95 - less than most generic Bourgogne from recent vintages. The domaine has done the hard work. You can now enjoy.

Special Pre Arrival Price $39.95 
(Save 25%)

Darren Harris: Medium red with a little bricking. Plummy, sous bois, dry rose petal. Notes of leather. Still with fruit but fully mature. Medium dry finish. Has the charming character of the 2000 vintage which has produced many wines of pleasure. One to drink over the next 3 years.

Noellat Santenay 2001 Charles Noellat Santenay 2001
Normally $53.50
Special Pre Arrival Price $39.95 
(Save 25%)

Darren Harris: 
Deeper than the 2000 with a garnet colour. Flavours of cassis, pencil shavings with liquored cherry notes in the background. Fresher with more acidity which drives the wine longer. More lively than 2000 but a little leaner with more defined tannins. Offers a wonderful snapshot of 2001 versus 2000.

It's a tough life but someone has to do it!
Part 2

Within minutes of arriving at Chez Hall in Meursault a delivery of samples for my consideration arrived.

31 wines to taste in a weekend. It is hard work!

All of the wines are from new producers and many have some bottle age. The thing they have in common is that they are all great value.

I'm diligently working my way through the wines as I write my emails. Today we feature a pair of Santenay. Domaine aged and silly cheap.
