Retrospective – 2005 Red Burgundy


The 2005 vintage in Burgundy has been hailed as…dare we say, ‘the vintage of the century.’ Hyperbole? Maybe. But one thing’s for certain – it’s been a long time that a Burgundy vintage has been as highly regarded – maybe since 1978! The obvious question is – are they ready to drink yet? And if not now – when?

Join us as we talk about our tasting of four Villages wines and four Premier Cru wines from the vintage to see how the wines are evolving. We’ll taste them so you don’t have to!

    Hi Andrew,

    I assume you’re using Safari on a Mac? If so, hold down the “option” and “return” keys while clicking on the “download” part of the post. This will put the mp3 file into your “Downloads” folder.
