More great aged Burgundy from a Private Cellar
 
We love to offer serious wines from private cellars. The wines must be top quality and professionally cellared to meet our strict criteria. These wines have come from one of our favourite private sources.
 
Today we are delighted to present a selection of aged wines from top vintages.
 
It is quite rare to see these vintages as most owners tend to keep them. However, this client has a 10,000 bottle cellar so a few bottles won't be missed. 
 
This is a great opportunity to grab some perfectly cellared wines that were purchased on release and professionally cellared since. These wines are not auction purchases that have been around the traps. It is worth stocking up!
Domaine Armand Rousseau Pere & Fils Clos de la Roche Grand Cru 1999 
$850.00 a bottle
2 bottles available
Rousseau Roche Mood
Jancis Robinson: Extremely sweet and voluptuous - almost over the top. Full-blown. So sweet, ripe
and heady it smells like treacle-toffee ice cream with the merest hint of
rhubarb. So gorgeous!!! Why can't all red burgundy deliver this much pleasure?
Rich, sweet and long. But not heavy at all. Lush just doesn't cover it. Neatly gathered up on the finish. 
(Drink between 2009-2025). 20/20

Burghound: An exceptionally pretty, even perfumed nose is still relatively primary with its combination of various red berries, earth and soft earth and leather nuances. There is excellent size and weight to the seductively rich but overtly powerful big-bodied flavors that deliver outstanding length where the only minor nit is a touch of warmth. This remains notably robust and will need at least another 5 to 10 years to arrive at its full peak. In a word, impressive. 
(Drink starting 2024).

Domaine Comte Georges de Vogue Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru 1999
$750.00 a bottle
5 bottles available

Vogue Bonnes-Mares Burghound: Massive notes of blueberry and blackberry jam yet there is a certain austerity to the nose followed by flavors that are huge, firm, reserved and extremely dense and while there is a solid underpinning of tannin, they are wrapped in sappy velvet. The length is just flat out stunning and very powerful. This remains quite closed and while it presently does not possess the refinement of either the '02 or the '01, with time it may catch them as the underlying material is every bit as good. Consistent notes save for this most recent bottle which exhibited just a touch of finishing dryness. (Drink starting 2014). 93 Points

Domaine Armand Rousseau Pere & Fils Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers 1999
$550.00 a bottle
1 bottle available

Rousseau Cazetiers label Jancis Robisnon: Only mid depth of ruby with a wide pale rim - just very slightly more orange than the 2000. Depth, nuance and sheer vitality on the nose. Wonderful richness and completeness on the palate. For the first time in this backwards vertical we have real substance and some development. This is pretty serious stuff, certainly not relying on simple sweet fruit. Dances and deliberates too. Great balance. Dry finish.

Domaine Jean Grivot Clos Vougeot Grand Cru 2009
$395.00 a bottle
2 bottles available

Grivot Vougeot label Vinous, Stephen Tanzer: The Bright medium red. Vibrant aromas of black cherry, licorice and minerals. Seamless, sappy and explosive on the palate, conveying an impression of silkiness without weight. Really explosive mouthfilling perfume here, even if there's plenty in reserve for a long and positive evolution in bottle. The wonderfully fresh, mounting finish features substantial dusty tannins and resounding black cherry and dark chocolate flavors. "The 2009s are to drink anytime," noted Grivot. "Even this Clos Vougeot would be great with grilled beef now." A great vintage for this bottling, which is partly from vines located in the so-so northeast corner of this vineyard. 95 Points

Burghound: A discreet touch of wood spice adds aromatic breadth to the very fresh, earthy and reserved red berry fruit nose that also offers up a suggestion of the sauvage that carries over to the rich, powerful and admirably concentrated big-bodied flavors that culminate in an impressively long, energetic and youthfully austere finish. This is a big and muscular but not rustic example that will require plenty of cellar time, in fact so much so that I have extended my expected drinking window as a result. 
(Drink starting 2029).

Domaine Jean Grivot Clos Vougeot Grand Cru 1998
$275.00 a bottle
5 bottles available

Grivot Vougeot label Burghound: As young Clos de Vougeot often is, this wine is a good deal less generous now than the '98 Echézeaux and is borderline austere yet there is plenty of solid material beneath the sober veneer. There is good sappy pinot extract with big, heavily soil inflected flavors and good length. A big wine needing 10 to 12 years to resolve its structure but it should amply reward the patient. 92 Points

Domaine Comte Georges de Vogue Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru 2005
$425.00 a bottle
1 bottle available

Vogue 1er label 2005 Young vine Musigny.

Burghound: 
A strikingly complex nose offers up notes of dried rose petal, exotic spices, tea, earth and very ripe red pinot fruit that merges into rich, full and wonderfully precise medium full-bodied flavors that possess impeccable balance and length that goes on and on. A smaller version of the Musigny and built to age almost as well. (Drink starting 2017). 93 Points

Domaine Jean Grivot Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Beaux Monts 2009
$295.00 a bottle
1 bottle available

Grivot Beaux Monts labelDecanterGood colour. Still quite closed on the nose. But a lot of depth here. Fullish body. Quite firm and youthful. A bit of tannin sticks out. Rich and energetic. Lots of dimension. Very fine. 
(Drink starting 2021). 95 Points

Vinous, Antonio Galloni: The 2009 Vosne-Romanée Les Beaux Monts is fabulous. Waves of fruit jump from the glass. The Beaux-Monts impresses for its textural depth and richness. There is an intense minerality to the fruit that gives the wine much of its power. The Beaux-Monts is firing on all cylinders today. A crescendo of fruit saturates the palate on the finish. This is another headspinning 2009 from Grivot. 
(Drink between 2017-2029). 94+ Points

Bichot Lavaux Label
Albert Bichot Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux-St-Jacques 2014
10 bottles available
Located next to Clos St-Jacques this is one of Gevrey's top 1er Crus producing "cool" wines of style and elegance.
Wine Enthusiast - Roger VossThis rich wine is dense with dark tannins and concentrated structure. The vineyard, with cool winds from the valley behind, gives wines that demand aging with their tannins and fragrant fruit. The aftertaste is full of promise. Drink after 2022. 94 Points

Burghound: 
A completely different aromatic profile is present here with its dark currant, humus, plum and animale scents. The earthy, punchy and detailed flavors possess solid mid-palate richness before culminating in a linear, austere, stony and muscular finale. This is a classically styled LSJ and worth checking out. 2022+. 92 Points
Bill Nanson "The Burgundy Report"Beautifully perfumed nose, exquisitely perfumed over deeper fruit. Large-scaled, faintly saline, a little tannin at the base but also supple, energetic and engagingly complex. What a lovely wine...Mouth watering, almost mouth staining flavour. A bigger, slightly broader wine than the Vosne (1er Cru Malconsorts), and today, maybe better!
