"Having just returned from Burgundy and tasting the 2006's with many of the top producers ….the most eye-opening tasting was that of Pierre Guillemot, whom I was turned onto by an old friend living and working in Beaune. Upon arrival I was introduced to the grandparents and shown pictures of 5 generations of winemakers. The current winemaker took me down to the cellar and showed me the production area and back vintage stock…a very impressive cellar. We started with the 2006 reds, they make about 6 Premier Cru wines and 1 Grand Cru wine, and I just could not believe how good these wines were showing despite their youthfulness. After tasting through the lineup, he asked me what was my favorite and I said the 'Les Jarrons' and 'Les Serpentieres', at which point he left and returned with 2 bottles of the 1988 vintage! That is when we pulled up the chairs and time seemed to just slip away as we drank the best two best bottles of aged Burgundy of the trip! I ended up spending over 4 hours. So to make a long story a bit shorter… Yesterday I was able to procure some of the great 2005's from Pierre Guillemot and today I can offer the following. I highly recommend purchasing these and for get about them for about 10 or more years…. I will be offering the 2006's as soon as I can but get these 2005's while you can!! "
