Aged Burgundy Dinner 1934-1969. Tuesday 27 February 2018

 

Aged Burgundy Dinner Header
Great vintages, serious vineyards...
Last November whilst in France I purchased an outstanding cellar of aged wine. The collection featured many rarely seen bottlings including an amazing selection of Grand Cru Burgundies.

Finding quality aged Burgundy has become particularly difficult - the supply has dried up and prices have risen enormously - so this was a particularly significant purchase.

It has been almost a year since our last Aged Burgundy Dinner and before I head back to France I thought it would be fun to host another rare wine dinner.

This dinner features 16 bottles of aged Burgundy. The youngest vintage is 1969 - hard to believe it will be 50 years old next year. There are no fewer than six 1959's - one of my all-time favourite vintages - and a host of other wines.

I have created 4 brackets - Nuits-St-Georges, Corton, Clos Vougeot and Grand Cru Gevrey-Chambertin. They are all communes with the ability to cellar for extended periods. Comparing wines in each bracket should be a fascinating exercise.
 
With 12 Grand Crus in the lineup this will be an exciting dinner and tasting for those curious about serious aged Burgundy.
