An Aged Premier Cru Burgundy from the great 1999 vintage at 2015 prices!
 
My trip to Burgundy at the end of 2016 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) so are in immaculate condition. 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 - considered by many to be the best vintage of the last 40 years - and it is not surprising this is a special wine.

Perhaps best of all you can buy this 19 year old wine, which is drinking magnificently, for the price of the current vintage. Go figure!

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.
