Classic (adjective) judged over a period of time to be of the highest quality and outstanding of its kind (noun) a work of art of recognised and established value. In the world of Champagne where both wines and public relations have been transformed to an art form, classics can be regarded as cuvées of high quality; a benchmark against which others are judged, and above all providing an eminent consistency that has earned the consumers trust. Classic can also describe particular champagne styles, methods of vinification and vintages.
