Vintage 2005

Vintage 2005 / Following a rainy April, May began with hot weather, causing record vine growth.

Summer was marked by alternating hot spells and cool, cloudy periods, though the weather remained dry.
Flowering started early but was interrupted by cool spells, causing coulure and millerandage (poor and uneven/incomplete fruit set) with the Chardonnay grapes.
A hailstorm on 17 July affected the Chassagne vineyard and the south of Puligny.
Fortunately, the good weather that followed remedied the damage, so that the grapes remained healthy. This storm spared most of the Domaine's parcels. 

The harvest took place from 15 to 24 September under excellent weather conditions.
The first vines harvested were those hit by hail on 20 July (Bourgogne and Village appellations). From 17 September on there was a north wind, dry weather, stable conditions and lots of sunshine. 
The grapes benefited from this unexpected good fortune, bumping up sugar levels (13°6 on average).

The sugar/acidity balances were perfect.

The Montrachet, Chevalier-Montrachet, Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet and Bâtard-Montrachet grands crus were harvested on the afternoon of Tuesday 20 September and on the Wednesday, fruit days (passage of the moon across the constellation of Aries), meaning a very beneficial moment for fruit work.

Good quantity
Excellent grape maturity quality 
Very good sugar/acidity ratios (no chaptalisation)
Harvest balanced and healthy, the first signs of a great vintage in white wines.

They can be enjoyed, at the earliest, as follow:
-Bourgogne Blanc from 2007
-Puligny-Montrachet from 2008
-The Premiers Crus from 2009
-The Grands Crus from 2010
-Montrachet from 2015
