Stunning Old Wines going back to 1927!


It has been quite a while since our last Old Wine Dinner. Late 2019 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.


We planned a wonderful dinner but twice covid ruined our plans. 2021 is here and now it is time to do celebrate with a super serious dinner showcasing some extremely rare wines.


We have some very 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.
