Vintage Champagnes

A Vintage Champagne is when 100% of the grapes come from the one Vintage/year.  Every year will produce slightly different yields and quality due to weather which influence the grapes, so some vintages are considered more exceptional than others.  Vintages are almost always declared from a year of particularly good harvest. Vintage Champagne must spend a minimum of three years on its lees whereas some producers will keep their wines for upwards of five to ten years or more.
