2002 Louis Lequin Santenay 1er Cru "Le Passe-Temps"

SKU #1122673

From the Chassagne Montrachet side of the village, this vineyard has red clay, from the iron content. This comes from the desirable upper portion of the vineyard, and comes direct from the producer. It is ripe on the nose, with bright cherry notes, an earthy charcater and an interesting development of secondary aromas, with substantial acidity. Perfect with some grilled lamb on the barbecue. This is a smoking deal for ten-year old Premier Cru Burgundy, with perfect provenance, ready to drink now! (Keith Wollenberg, K&L Burgundy Buyer, 04/2013)

Here's a chance to get ready to drink red Burgundy at a great price. Very Chassagne-like in style, this Santenay nonetheless shows a wonderfully rich texture for a 2002. The nose is exceptionally round and supple with a nice minerally note and lightly spiced. On the palate the wine still shows a lovely texture with a nice structure of fine tannins and minerals with a light touch of earth while maintaining the wonderful sweet cherry richness the nose promised. It absolutely calls out for lambchops on the grill, .

Incredible find from our buyers. A 2002 Burgundy showing at its peak! The beautiful garnet color let's us know of its age, followed by an array of tertiary aromas, brown sugar, cinnamon spices, plums and a touch of leather. It is a light/medium, quite delicate bodied wine to be appreciated slowly.

This 2002 has reached its secondary stage of development, showing characteristics of leather, cigar box and smoky meats. It has lovely ripe cherry and strawberry compote flavors on the palate. The wine finishes long with tertiary notes of damp forest floor and loam. It's rare to get such a pristine example of a bottle aged wine from the winery at such a great price.
