People are drawn to the wines of Champagne partly from their association with celebration, success and luxury and partly because these wines, at their best, are some of the most complex to be found. At Tanners we try to offer you a range of the well-known brands, such as Bollinger.

Vintage champagnes are only produced in the best years. They have undergone a longer maturation than their non-vintage counterparts and consequently have more depth and complexity along with more bready flavours and aromas.

For champagne to be specified as ‘vintage’, 100% of the grapes must have been grown in the year on the label. Vintage champagnes spend a minimum of three years on their lees whilst some of the top champagne houses keep their wines on the lees in excess of five, or even ten years, in some cases.
