2005 Red Burgundy, January 21, 2014 

Happy New Year!

The 2005 Burgundy vintage has the marks of a perfect year.  "This is an extraordinary year for the red wines of Burgundy in both the Côte de Beaune and especially in the Cote de Nuits. The grapes had thick skins and ripe pips giving rapid and profound colour extraction, yet the profile of the vintage is definitely more red fruit than black. There is a marvellous refreshing mineral aspect which keeps these wines lively and dynamic - a turbo-charged 2002 perhaps. These factors set 2005 apart from other years and almost certainly pushes it above the famous 1990 and 1999 vintages." Berry Brothers & Rudd vintage report.  Toronto Vintners Club has 8 Premier cru Burgundies for you to enjoy from this marvellous vintage.
