Aged Burg Dinner Header 2
Great vintages, serious vineyards, exciting venue...
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 back to 1934.

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.

Scott Pickett The dinner will be at ESP (Estelle by Scott Picket). The restaurant has 2 Chef's Hats in the Good Food Guide 2018. Scott's food is always exciting and will match the wines brilliantly. You can read more about the restaurant here.
 
With 12 Grand Crus in the lineup this will be an exciting dinner and tasting for those curious about serious aged Burgundy.

Domaine Philippe Cheron Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Aux Murgers 2016
Special Pre Arrival Offer ends 10am tomorrow

We have had a super response to Domaine Philippe Cheron's Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Aux Murgers. To read our original offer click here.

Philippe has elaborated on the history of the vineyard. Aux Murgers was purchased by his grandfather Paul Misset in 1938. The vines were rented to the Rion family in Vosne-Romanee from 1938 to 2016!

In 2016 Philippe received the vines back and this is the first vintage of the wine.

It is a small parcel of only 0.21 hectares. The vines are at least 70 years old and in 2016 the yield was very low - just 20hl/ha. This is why this wine is so, so good.

Our special Pre Arrival Discount of 25% ends at 10am tomorrow.

If you wish to save an extra 10% please get your order in today.

Landed Price $197.50
Special Pre Arrival Price until 10am tomorrow $147.95
Pre Arrival Price after 10am tomorrow $167.95
