The Grand Vintage range, as its name suggests, is only made in those optimal vintages such as 2004, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2012 and 2013. The result of these sublime harvests has been the obtaining of a very expressive extra brut champagne. . For the elaboration of this 2013 vintage, the 75 Grand Vintage in the history of the 'maison', the majority has opted for Chardonnay. The result has been a champagne marked by its maturity, complexity and freshness. It also offers a certain harmony, accompanied by delicacy and freshness.
