Stunning Old Wines going back to 1927!

 

It has been quite a while since our last Old Wine Dinner. Late last year in one of our containers we received a lovely shipment of aged bottles from one of our French contacts. Most of the wines were from Burgundy but there were also some scarce bottles from elsewhere in France.

 

To my delight the bottles fell in to some interesting brackets which we will taste at this dinner. Included is a pair of Beaujolais Crus from 1964 (I have enjoyed quite a few aged Beaujolais and they become surprisingly like the Cote d’Or), Burgundy back to 1934 and a trio of aged Chateauneuf/Cahors, the oldest almost a 100 years of age. It is an increasingly rare opportunity to savour wines of yesteryear.
