"This is pure vintage 1998, but it is not labeled as such. Paul Vincent Ariston says that his 25 year-old vines reflect the vintage, but the Prestige, made from vines averaging 60 years, reflect his terroir. He feels that putting a vintage date on this wine would be an insult to his best vineyard plots. It is composed of 50% chardonnay, 25% pinot noir and 25% meunier. This was one of the best bottles from my 2005 trip, and we drank two just to make sure! It has fantastic Brouillet black cherry power, and finishes very dry and super long. It is a powerhouse in the style of a vintage Bollinger, but with even more soul! (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne and Sherry buyer) "
