The 2005 Bordeaux vintage featured sunny, hot, and dry conditions throughout the summer, with rains arriving just enough (and in just the right amounts) to avert stress to the vines. Night time temperatures began to chill at the perfect time in late September to preserve acidity and extend the fruit's march toward full phenolic ripeness. The result was a superb vintage, top-to bottom / left bank and right bank, that should age well  for decades. Overshadowed by the 2009 and 2010 vintages and with its prices somewhat muted by the worldwide recession and financial crisis of 2007-2010, the '05 vintage in Bordeaux represents a unique opportunity for collectors.
