Electrifying Vintage 2005 Bordeaux

If you were able to attend Nashville Wine Auction’s Vintage 2005: Another Monumental Tasting of Bordeaux last November, then you know what this lot is all about. And if you were NOT able to join us on that special evening, well you’re in luck! We’ve got 18 additional bottles from Bordeaux’s iconic 2005 vintage, the finest in modern times, from the cellar of Pam and Steve Taylor. Win this lot and you could impress your friends with your very own special tasting!

Lot Details

There are many different characteristics of Bordeaux wine that make each vintage shine. One year, you might have a wine that has perfectly rounded tannins. Another year might bring intense fruit flavors. Then another vintage might find the perfect balance between fruit, wood, and alcohol. But rarely will you find a Bordeaux wine that encompasses ALL the characteristics that distinguish great Bordeaux such as you find in the 2005 vintage.

Experts said that the 2005 vintage would need 15-20 years of bottle age to become truly perfect, which means these babies are in their prime years. Still fresh and vibrant like young wine yet with layers of diverse aromas and flavors, from bright red fruit to decadent game and earth, these “modern classics” envelop the rich complexity of character that only develops in a great wine from a great vintage. They are truly electrifying to drink.

Join us for l’Eté du Vin and raise your paddle for these amazing bottles!
