What makes vintage Champagne?
Vintage Champagne is made with grapes harvested in a single year, while non-vintage Champagne is made by blending the harvest of several years. This means that each vintage is totally unique - ideal if you're after an individual, character-driven drop. Non-vintage Champagne allows an estate to create a signature style every year, which customers can rely on to taste the same. Vintages make up less than 5% of total Champagne production and Champagne houses generally only make three of four vintages a decade
