Denis Patoux Magnum Vintage 2005
Denis Patoux Magnum Vintage 2005
Despite certain issues, the Champagne vintage from 2005 was very good.
A cool but dry winter signaled the start of the growing season, and a decent spring enabled both a successful budburst and flowering. Good weather persisted during the first part of the summer, but July offered a dampener as temperatures stayed warm and rain showers brought dampness and mildew. August saw a slight increase in humidity, but temperatures were generally lower, save for one particularly hot spell that re-started the ripening process. After that, September brought the warm, consistent weather required to dry out the vines and force the remaining grapes into phenolic ripeness, but chilly nights preserved vital acidity and aromatics. Beginning in September, the harvest was also ready for picking under perfect circumstances.
The 2005 Champagne vintage was excellent overall but may have fallen short of being superb.

Denis Patoux is a family-owned champagne producer who produces great quality champagne where you get an amazing value for money. They are located in Vandières, champagne, France. The champagne house is mostly run by Mr. and Madamme Patoux and their children are starting to take over as time goes. They produce their champagne in their own facilities and the grapes are picked from their own grape fields. This means that everything happens in place which ensures their high-quality champagne. Other than that it also avoids a lot of transport of the grapes which is better for the environment. All of their champagne is aged in-house whereas their non-vintage champagnes must be aged for at least 12 months on 'lees'. Their vintage champagnes are aged for much longer, their newest release is their millésime 2016 which has been aging for 6 years. At Denis Patoux they make a mix of lovely non-vintage champagne, where you can find most champagne styles available on the market. Other than that they also have a fantastic selection of vintage champagnes, as time goes we will try to expand our selection from Denis Patoux as we really believe in their product which is of high quality, while still being affordable.
