“Among the 1ers and grands crus, 1990, 1991, 1993, 1999, 2001 and 2002 all produced some wines that are wonderfully impressive and certainly great, indeed in certain cases, a full-on match for their 2005 counterparts. But in terms of the sheer number of great wines, 2005 surpasses all of them in my view.”—Burghound
How can a lover of Burgundy not be awed by the sheer power of terroir? Unique, complex and always profound, red Burgundy from winemaker Frédéric Magnien even in lesser years perfectly captures the character of each Côte d'Or plot he chooses.
And when you combine a profoundly talented artisan with a vintage of the quality of 2005, be prepared for some serious fireworks. 2005 is a landmark year, a remarkable vintage that brings to mind 1985 and 1990, yet raises the volume considerably higher.
This special selection of new Burgundy cuvées from the Magnien family exhibits everything you'd expect from legendary Burgundy—penetrating colors, intense, layered flavors, and a sublime character that all but guarantees a great cellar life. LIMITED!
