Limited Release from The Historic 2005 Vintage!
"Rich and saturating in the mouth." Wine Spectator

2005?! Yes, 2005!

In 2005, red Burgundy appellations from Gevrey-Chambertin to Pommard all experienced a fantastic growing season. Across the board, the wines received accolades such as "magnificent," "outstanding", and "historic."

We've seen parallels to the recent 2015 vintage, but those wines are still a touch young and don't have the bottle age of this precious Premier Cru by Domaine Darviot-Perrin. And, why push early enjoyment of those Burgundies when you can experience the depth and beauty of a 2005?

"2005 red Burgundies are rightly revered... with beguilingly ripe fruit." Jancis Robinson

Darviot-Perrin's Volnay 1er Cru "La Gigotte" showcases the best of the Volnay appellation. We tasted this wine last week. It is almost too good to express in words, but we will try:

Beautifully balanced, vibrant structure and savory, mesmerizing fruit. Wild strawberry and cherry notes. True to Volnay, there is copious fruit but terrific cut and focus - even after 14 years. Lingering aromatics of red berries, a hint of coffee and a touch of spice bring this wine full circle.

We grabbed everything we could from this library release, which isn't much. Don't miss this opportunity as nearly all 2005 Burgundies at this stage can only be procured from auctions and estate sales.

Enjoy it now and over the next 7 years.

Enjoy!
