Denis Patoux Vintage 2014
Denis Patoux Vintage 2014
Year 2014 was a difficult year for some champagne producers. But there was some success for some of the producers including Denis Patoux. 2014 had a warm, dry spring which meant that the growing season got off to a quick, healthy start. Flowering was successful, and the absence of any severe frost gave producers cause for optimism.
However, it all went wrong when the summer proved to be very damp. July and August were cool and wet with only the later half of August eventually drying out. Although the large volume of rain was enough to make rot a concern, cooling breezes, fortunately kept it down. A gentle September brought warmness to the fields, dry conditions ripening the grapes and effectively saving the harvest. The resulting grapes, although not exceptional, were generally very good. This champagne shows the quality of Denis Patoux who had a difficult year but still got good enough grapes to produce a great vintage. This is great for drinking now, but can also be stored in your wine cellar for the future.
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.
