The Vintage is the choice of an exceptional year from which only a selection of the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir Grands Crus 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.

2008 was characterized by a cold but not harsh winter and a dull and rainy spring. Harvest started mid-September in dry and cold conditions, perfect weather for healthy grapes which provided attractive Chardonnays and Pinots Noirs. These high quality grapes revealed an outstanding aromatic richness that boded well for an exceptional Vintage.
