2005: great vintage year

Vintage year review :

In 2005, all conditions required to do a great vintage years were gathered. June was a little bit capricious but not so much, flowering went right while July and August were good. September was dry; sunny during the day and fresh during the night. Then a little bit of rain and then started the Harvest. This is definitly an incredible vintage year.

Tasting advice:

Wait 10 or 15 years before drinking it.
