Another wine writer enthusing about the 2005 Burgundy is TIM ATKIN MW. He regards London's Burgundy week as an opportunity to brush glasses with some of the most famous winemakers in the world and sip reds that many of us will never be able to afford. And there is so much hype about the 2005s that many wines have already sold out.
Is 2005 the greatest Burgundy vintage ever? For Atkin, the answer is yes and no. He warns that some of the reds have uncomfortably high levels of acidity with insufficient fruit sweetness to balance them. But he concedes that there are some wonderful wines on offer.
