Description & Technical Information
-
Every Grand Vintage is unique and original, the Cellar Master's interpretation of the singular year that is produced. The Met & Chandon Grand Vintage spirit is founded on three essential values: Freedom of interpretation, selection of the year's most remarkable wines and individuality of the vintage.

Weather:
The 1988 vintage was a late, rainy season with a good yield and perfect acidity. Generally considered a very good vintage, champagnes from this year are typically full-bodied and will remain in a condition of wonderful balance for a long time to come. Harvesting began relatively late: September 26th for the Pinot Noir and Meunier and September 27th for the Chardonnay. An average 9.3 alcohol level and 9.6 g/L acidity at harvest time resulted in a balance that can be characterised as taut.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: Predominantly Grand & Premier Crus
Grape Varieties: 50% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Meunier
Ageing: 14 years on the lees
Disgorged: October 2003
Dosage: 7.5 g/l
Drink: Now to 2022

Tasting Note: A golden yellow colour with a fine bead, the initial aromas are dry and slightly smokey, with roasted hazelnuts. On the palate, an invigorating citrus and zesty notes with hints of honey, almond and dried fruits. The finish is long and lasting.
