About This Wine
Following World War I, Europe was a place of new possibilities.
In the Champagne region of France, a small group of winegrowers discussed taking “the next step” — making wine from their grapes, rather than selling the fruit to others. They believed that their knowledge and expertise would enable them to make an exceptional Champagne.
In 1921, the growers made it official. Their discussions led to the creation of the Champagne Collet brand, named after one of the leaders of the organizational movement. Over the years, Collet would become a leading name in Champagne, and today the children and grandchildren of the founders carry on the winegrowing and winemaking tradition.
Collet’s “Millesime” bottling showcases outstanding vintages and complex sensations. Crafted from 10 different lots of Premier or Grand Cru quality wine, it’s a blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. It’s a perfectly balanced Champagne of great finesse — a tasty testament to the vision of Collet’s founders.
Champagne is a sparkling wine produced by inducing the in-bottle secondary fermentation of the wine to effect carbonation. It is produced exclusively within the Champagne region of France.
