Few Burgundy connoisseurs would argue that 2005 is not one of the best, or very possibly the very best, vintage of the last 50 years.
Demand for this vintage is such that it is seldom available in the secondary market. We've struck gold with Domaine Remoriquet who in their back vintage catalogue have not one, but five different 2005 Nuits-St-Georges available at prices that are just 10-20% above the current 2014 releases!
This 10 hectare estate is famous for its long-ageing reds which Burghound says "exude plenty of character and finesse and while they are not as elegant as the wines of Robert Chevillon, they are every bit as interesting".
If you don't have any 2005's in the cellar (and every Burgundy lover should have) this is an opportunity not to be missed. The wines have lain undisturbed at the domaine since bottling and are pristine.
Here is just one of the wines:
Domaine Remoriquet Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Les St-Georges 2005
Pre Arrival Price $170.50
Les St-Georges is Nuits-St-Georges' greatest vineyard. It is currently applying for elevation to Grand Cru status.
Clive Coates: Very full, youthful colour. Rich and ripe on the nose. Classy too. But closed in. Full, concentrated, rich and oaky on the palate. This is a very stylish example. Concentrated, complex and potentially velvety. Lovely finish. Very fine. From 2022.
(Tasted February 2011)

This is a rare opportunity to obtain domaine-aged Red Burgundies at very reasonable prices. In fact prices that are almost never encountered these days. If you need some aged Burgundy for your cellar I suggest you take advantage of our Pre Arrival Prices whilst stocks last.
