Red Burgundy, 2005

2005 was a great year across Burgundy for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay – in both renowned and underrated districts, and generic Bourgogne. Pinot Noir, which developed a relatively thick skin, was particularly outstanding, making wines of great structure and colour.

A near perfect summer growing season of dry, sunny days (without excessive heat) and cool nights, resulted in the nice, slow ripening of fruit, producing small, perfectly ripe, concentrated fruit with delicious aromatics. Production was down on 2004, which is good news for investors but less so for consumers who should expect to see price rises.

Burgundy is known as a buyer’s minefield and there are still certain Burgundy growers who are able to make poor wines in even great vintages, although you could probably skip quite happily through this year, without causing an explosion!
