Champagne Vintage 2001

There is not much to say of this very poor year. A shamefully gigantic and dilute harvest ruined by last minute rains. Sugar levels remained low and acidity was accentuated in the wines of this year, with botrytis presenting a significant problem. Harvest commenced as late as September 20th. Only a few vintage Champagnes were produced but amongst those that were, there are some rare gems. The wine of the vintage must be Philpponnat's Clos des Goisses, which was actually very good but has matured much quicker than most other vintages. There were also great grower successes. I was at the time impressed by Agrapart Vénus and Vilmart & Cie Coeur de Cuvée.
