Can this be possible? 1999 Beaune Premier Cru at half price? The wine here is fully mature and full of umami flavours...

A great value with the intent to investigate mature Burgundy. This has brick colour. The nose is soft and mild with...

Now over ten years of age, it is easy to see why 1999 has been hailed as such an excellent vintage; even basic...

This is a blend from many 1er Cru vineyards, but what it lacks in specific character it makes up in value.

'99 was a good year in Beaune. This would have spent about 12-18 months in wood before bottling so it has around 9 years of age on it.

Pale red with the pretty, telltale bricking of age. Young wines have aromas, aged wines develop a bouquet and even in this modest Burgundy you get a sense of that; sweet strawberries, earthy black truffles, leather...

Very little sediment (was this re-bottled?)
Sweet & savory, well balanced, smooth tannins, good finish.

Well worth the price.

What an awesome opportunity! An 11.5 year old Pinot Noir for under $30. This light bodied, aged wine has nice, yet subtle aromas of raspberry, red currant, earth and leather. Tannins are refined (decant for more than 30 min), acidity is balanced and the finish is long. Not to cellar this whine, instead, drink it now (I sensed faint notes of mold - probably an unlucky bottle as the critics would have picked up on it). My impression: NICE, 89 pts - I would recommend to get one or two bottles and to drink it in a short term. Tasted Nov/10.
