Tasting Burgundy's Anticipated 2005 Vintage

Jun 5, 2006

Join me each day from June 5th through June 13th as I taste the highly anticipated 2005 Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays from barrel. I will keep you updated on my visits with small growers and several négociant houses in Burgundy’s famous Côte d’Or.

Although I tasted '05s at several domaines during my visit this past January, the wines had not gone through malolactic fermentation and were difficult to evaluate. On this trip, I will give you the inside information on my favorite wines from my visits and tastings.
