Old Burgundies … can be a real treat. This was the case with the Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cazetiers 1969 from Maison Leroy. Starting out a bit mouldy .. but pure and crisp after 5 to 10 minutes in the glass. In the bouquet bright red berries – mulberries, raspberries and sous-bois and hint of truffle – lovely transparency and detail.

A wine of finesse and refinement – a rare treat.
