The Cuvées

Collection Memory

An homage to the finest years of Champagne.


The Collection Memory is a guardian of time and a testament to Alfred Gratien’s best vintages, lovingly preserved for at least 20 years in the Alfred Gratien wine library, at the heart of its cellars.

Bearing witness to exceptional harvests and traditional expertise in oak-barrel vinification, this collection is a true testament to the signature style of Alfred Gratien champagnes. A singular style exuding generosity and finesse, the fruit of a tradition passed on by the Jaeger family, cellar masters from father to son, for four generations since 1905.

Presented in a case specially crafted for Collection Memory wines, these exceptional vintages will offer the most refined palates all the pleasure and emotion of great wines.

1997, 1998, 1999. The first 3 vintages of a rare collection.



The description of Nicolas Jaeger, cellar master Alfred Gratien for each vintage.

1997 : The dominant Chardonnay gives this vintage elegance and finesse, as well as particular ageing potential.’

1998 : ‘A year in which abundance and plenty miraculously joined forces. Its very best wines will inevitably be the vintage ones.’

1999 : “Quantity and quality were both present for the last vintage of the millennium. This wine features splendid freshness with mineral notes and plenty of energy.”
