2005 VIN­TAGE IN CHAM­PAGNE

Epicure - - CELLAR CHOICE -

Un­like 2002 and 2004 which were uni­ver­sally her­alded, 2005 in Cham­pagne was gen­er­ally ap­proach­able. A mild spring but ideal ripen­ing weather dur­ing harvest saw good con­di­tions for most pro­duc­ers, though wine critic Jan­cis Robin­son notes acid­ity is on the low side.

Chardon­nays gen­er­ally fared bet­ter, with firstrate Pinot Noir from Grand Cru sites that were able to fully ripen.
