We have a few cases of this incredible-aged Burgundy deal coming directly from the producer's cellar. With the pricing of Burgundy these days and especially on the new releases, it is nice to get something ready to drink and a price that doesn't break the bank from a great vintage. 1990 is considered one of the best vintages of the 90s, with the wines from Savigny typically being more on the rustic side, which are extremely long-lived and are beautiful with age. These are the only bottles available in the world rig0ht now and are excellent buys for Burgundy with age.
It's always fun to find some back vintage bottles of Burgundy at great pricing, and that's what we have today. We were turned on to these by a respected friend who recently tasted a bottle and thought it was an excellent showing of the 1990 vintage. Many producers that aren't widely known tend to have hidden treasures in their cellar, like Les Moulin Aux Moines. Though the original winery isn't making wine anymore, possibly rebranding, selling holdings, or converting to a hotel, the wines have been stored in the cellars unmoved since bottling. The wine still shows lovely fruit with classic matured red Burgundy notes of sous bois, mushroom, and earth, with a medium body. It is a well-balanced, textbook-aged Burgundy that is a great deal at this pricing for a premier cru with over 30 years of age. These are some of the only bottles available in the world, and it isn't every day we can find a nicely aged premier cru for under $100. A wine from a great vintage that is ready to drink now is highly recommended for those who love older Burgundy or older wines in general but are typically turned away by the pricing.
