The Vintage is the choice of an exceptional year from which selected Grands Crus of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir will enter into a future iteration of Grand Siècle. It is a rare and outstanding wine that expresses the character of the year in the Laurent-Perrier style. These high quality grapes revealed an outstanding aromatic richness that augured well for an exceptional Vintage.
