2005 Vintage

Mythical is the superlative that best describes this vintage where all the ideal conditions combined to make this an exceptional vintage: in other words a perfect vegetative cycle.

July was very sunny and dry, with only a small amount of hail, without consequence. The dry conditions slowed the maturity, just the right amount of rain and a north wind to dry the grapes.

During the harvest, the pinot noir grapes showed a thick skin and the chardonnay a perfect balance between sugar and acidity.

The whites were rich and aromatic, and will keep for many years and the reds have a great structure and elegance.

Pinot 19/20

Chardonnay 18/20

My advice: They are quite ready yet so if you have some, keep them in the cellar for now.
