Robert Ampeau, 'Santenots' Premier Cru Volnay 2001


One of the issues around the point system in wine is that it’s not updated after the initial release. One of the benefits of that issue is that the wine prices for those vintages are not updated either despite the wine aging into something special.

2001 Red Burgundy is that– the dorky kid in high school who is now your boss. The reason it didn’t receive much acclaim was the weather was cold and rainy. In turn the wines were lean and earthy. Those flavors with 20 years in the bottle have turned out to be what makes it great today. It now tastes like strawberry jam, porcini mushroom, and smells like new leather. It’s good. Robert Ampeau is a producer who believes in this as much as we do. In fact– this is the current release from the winery. The Ampeau family cellars their wines and sells them when they’re finally delicious. Patience is a virtue…
