2008 Hautes-Côtes de Beaune


2008 Doudet Naudin Hautes-Côtes de Beaune, AC Château d'Antigny

This is the last time I allow a silly case of wayward nostalgia to influence a wine decision. Doudet Naudin is a producer I recall with great fondness - it was the first serious red Burgundy I ever drank, a delicious bottle of some Premier Cru of Beaune, I can't recall specifics. So, seeing one of its more simple wines on release, with a favourable review, I prepped it for dinner.

Over-macerated, confected fruit, a glorified Beaujolais Nouveau. The end. Disgusting, insulting, and quite shocking frankly, that they're charging $25 for it. A slap in the face, but that's what being nostalgic will do to you.
