The '80s and '90s brought about some of the most iconic moments in history, with films such as Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, Pretty in Pink and of course The Breakfast Club all becoming great classics even today. In Music, we had the birth of the MTV Music Awards with memorable performances by both Madonna, and Cyndi Lauper who eventually won the award for "Best Female Video. And of course who can forget the '90s sitcom Friends!?
But entertainment aside, these two decades were known as the "Golden Age" of Burgundy, especially towards the 90s which were responsible for some of the best vintages. It was a period of revolution - an era of new generation young growers about to step up to the plate, and was also the first generation that trained together at the Lycee Viticole de Beaune, and also tasted in each other's cellars. As Allen Meadows puts it, these "growers learned to approach key aspects of viticulture and vinification with a fresh perspective, the effects on quality were transformational". With many of these bottles now drinking at its peak, this is a chance to pick up some of these historic bottles to reminisce on this classic period.
Cheers and happy hunting!
