The latest version of the vintage continues the 1995 and 1996 vintages, two champagnes released three years ago when the program was officially launched.
The champagnes in the Vinotheque collection are the estate"s premium crystal champagnes, which are kept in the cellar for at least 20 years before being released.
These champagnes are initially kept on their lees for 8 to 12 years, then aged for another 5 to 10 years in sur pointe, which means that the pulp is sieved out through a sieve but remains unspit, and then aged for another 2 to 6 years.
This champagne is currently available as a white and a rose.
