Hospices de Beaune, Volnay 1er Cru 750ml 1999France, Burgundy
We are delighted to offer a stash of incredible, mature Burgundies bought by the late Paul Bouchard during his partnership with Peter Finlayson. The five wines are delightfully mature and offer a haunting array of flavour and savoury intrigue. They are all composed and ethereal with different levels of power and finesse.
Due to the nature of Burgundy, its intricate vineyard parcels and small domaines, vintage wines are extremely difficult to find. It is only when you drink mature Burgundies that you can fully understand why Burgundy has risen to such heights. Having been stored at Bouchard Finlayson since release, these offer an unbelievable opportunity to drink mature Burgundy at today’s release prices. Fill your boots!
Each Hospices de Beaune wine is dedicated to the characters that shaped Burgundy. They are all produced from the 60ha owned by the Hospices.
'This is a dark, rich and brooding wine from a great vintage and is the most impressive of the line-up. Slight reduction slowly blows off to reveal fine, savoury undertones and plush fruit. Forest floor, cured meats and wet earth show good complexity. Mature, but powerful with a fine acidity and evident tannins, this will age well for another decade. Drink to 2030.' – Roland Peens (April 2018)
Comments by Hospices de Beaune:
'The composition of the Cuvée should not leave wine lovers indifferent: the wine is made up of 70% of Champans and Taille Pieds, planted between 1952 and 1989. Les Ronceret planted in 1961 and Mitans planted between 1955 and 1972 make up the rest.'
