Michel Gros Nuits-St-Georges 2005
The 2005 vintage was by all accounts near-perfect. Allen Meadows (Burghound) called it “one of the greatest vintages in the history of modern Burgundy.” Jancis Robinson MW called it a “glorious” and “rightly revered” vintage; Jasper Morris MW called it “the most uniformly successful vintage I have seen in my career.”
As happens with most great vintages, the 2005s went into hibernation after bottling — over the past decade they’ve shown their intensity and class, but have been missing the richness and complexity you’d expect. They’re just now beginning to edge into their drinking window, and so we’ve decided to let our customers direct their final acts — we think they’ll continue to improve for another decade or more, but the rest is up to you.
