    One often hears and reads that 2005 is a vintage of the century. Indeed, the tremendous potential of wines from this magnificent year is already obvious. Not only is this a very great vintage, but the wines are also delicious young. However, wine lovers would be well-advised to hold off from drinking them straight away, and their patience will be richly rewarded.
    The withe wines are fairly closed today (in 2007) and not very aromatic, but display ripe tannin and a beautiful mineral quality. It is suggested to age them as long as possible.

  • Grape Variety & Plot size

    Encépagement: 100% Chardonnay sur une parcelle de 0,27 hectare.
