Champagne Vintage 2005

A dry start to the year with flowering occurring in June. An overall warm year that progressed without too many complications, however hot and wet weather at the turn of July led to some mildew outbreaks. Picking of the abundant harvest (12,991 kg/ha) started on September 9th with high hopes. The result is a mixed harvest with variable conditions. Some winemakers selected very carefully and produced sound Champagnes. Due to the overall hype for the vintage in France, and the wines showing generous and friendly upon release, the vintage was well received. However, the wines have not turned out nearly as good as expected, producing rich yet singular and heavy Champagnes, often with overripe characteristics. These aromatics must have gone largely unnoticed at the time of blending, but have become amplified over time in the bottle. Although some wines are starting to show negative evolution, the very best examples from this vintage are still ageing well and are worth seeking out.
