This 1959 is timeless and ethereal

“Golden-yellow, with an apricot-yellow shimmer in its intense yellow color the 1957 shows a clear and intense yet stunningly young and pure bouquet of mocha, yeast/brioche, white nougat, honey and peach/quince confiture mingled with very well defined spicy and mineral flavors that don't just give purity and precision, but also freshness and energy to the wine. On the palate this is a sweet, intense, full-bodied, very elegant and powerful wine with a firm and tight-woven structure and great persistence. This is an outstanding Haut Lieu, more dry than nowadays, very pure, fresh and mineral despite its richness, with great vitality, finesse, balance, and tension in the endless and thrilling finish. This is one of the finest, and from the matured wines it is the most youthful Huet of this tasting to be served in top restaurants today, not only with cheese (Vacherin, Epoisses, Fourme d'Ambert) but a rice dish with black truffles, mushrooms, black pepper and whatever your Sommelier considers as convenient (hopefully Bresse chicken). Honestly, I would not drink this wine at home, but hire the best cook available to create the once-in-a-lifetime combination. I will do that with the rest of this bottle knowing that no Burgundy on earth (at least of this age) could give me a greater pleasure. The 1959 could reach an even higher score in ten, 20 or 30 years. “
