Nearly Sold Out. Three Terrific Premier Crus from 1999 and 2002 direct from the domaine's cellar

Doudet 3 1ers Header

Three Aged Premier Cru Burgundies from the magnificent 1999 and 2002 vintages at prices you'd have to be crazy to miss

 

There is nothing like Burgundy aged in the cold, dark cellars of the domaine. The wines are always fresher and more focused than you see anywhere else.

 

The pressures of modern business means very few makers now hold back stock to sell as aged wine.

 

However, one of our producers does. Doudet-Naudin have a history of retaining a portion of each vintage to release at a later date (their old wine stock actually goes back to the 1930's). Traditionally it was restaurants that benefited from this program but we have managed to convince them to let us have some of these wonderful back vintages for our clients.

 

This offer features three wines from the wonderful 2002 and 1999 vintages. We all know how good those vintages are!

 

All wines are in pristine condition having never left the cellars. What is even more remarkable is the price. These wines are available at similar or less than what the current vintage would cost.

 

These opportunities do not come along often. If you would like to add some fine aged Burgundy to your cellar at an incredible price I suggest you stock up soon.

 

All wines are available at our usual Pre Arrival Price whish is 15% less than the landed price. If you buy by the unbroken case of 12 bottles this discount increases to 20%. 

 

Doudet Greves Label Beaune 1er Cru Les Greves 2002

Normal Price $69.95

Pre Arrival Price $59.50

Pre Arrival Price Case of 12 Bottles $671.50 (=$55.95 a bottle)

 

Now very limited

 

Brilliant, vibrant red-black. If one did not know the age of the wine you could easily be thinking 2010. It looks that fresh. Cool, tight, dark nose oozing with minerality. Black fruits, a hint of liquorice, cassis and violet. Masses of extract. Fresh and very mineral in the mouth. Intense, concentrated, structured and very long on the palate. Deep and brooding with fine grained tannins driving the finish.

 

Doudet Perrieres Beaune 1er Cru Les Perrieres 2002

Normal Price $69.95

Pre Arrival Price $59.50

Pre Arrival Price Case of 12 Bottles $671.50 (=$55.95 a bottle)

 

The name Perrieres comes from the fact that this site was once a quarry. The stony soil produces a mineral wine.

 

Beautifully aromatic nose of ripe red cherry, flowers, a hint of marzipan and cherry pits. A silky, fresh palate, mineral infused, with deliciously succulent flavours over long and fine tannins. Racy but mouthcoating. At the beginning of its drinking window but capable of many more years in the cellar. A really fine example of 1er Beaune from a top vintage.

 

$55.95 a bottle by the case! That is a bargain.

 

Savigny-les-Beaune 1er Cru Les Vergelesses 1999

Normal Price $89.95

Pre Arrival Price $76.50

Pre Arrival Price Case of 12 Bottles $863.50 (=$71.96 a bottle)

 

6 Cases left 

 

One of the best sites in Savigny lying just above Pernand's Ile de Vergelesses to which it is similar in style.

 

Spicy nose of raspberry and black cherry combined with aromas of clove, white pepper and background notes of vanilla. Stony minerals. Very fresh with a delightful lift. Vital. Sleek and refined. Has the power and structure of 1999 with the zip of Savigny-les-Beaune. 

 

Sourced direct from the domaine's cellars these wines are ridiculously cheap.

Bitouzet Perrieres Old

 

Meursault 1er Cru Perrieres

Worthy of Grand Cru Status?

 

For me the 1er Cru White Burgundy most worthy of elevation to Grand Cru status is Meursault Perrieres. 

 

The vineyard produces wines of precision and race with a long mineral spine. One could say the most Puligny-like of the Meursault vineyards.

 

We recently landed a selection of back vintages of Meursault 1er Cru Perrieres from Domaine Bitouzet-Prieur.

 

This included wines back to 2006 and a number of big bottles featuring Magnums and Jeroboams of the tremendous 2010.

 

The nice thing is that this domaine is very reasonably priced. You can buy perfectly aged back vintages for just $117.50 a bottle which is very cheap for Meursault Perrieres.

We also have a range of Meursault Perrieres from other makers including Coche-Dury available. Click here to see them all.
