Non-vintage vs multi-vintage usage on a wine list

Hello, 

Could anyone explain the difference of use of non-vintage vs multi-vintage? Fundementally they are quite similar as every NV is actually a MV. 

Would it be wiser to use NV for the blends we don't actually know the vintages and MV for the blends that we know from which vintages it is?

How would you write that on your wine lists?

Thanks

  • I use MV on the list at Ella. I don't like the negative connotation that I personally associate with the prefix "Non". Like it is not good enough to be a vintage Champagne, so it's a NON-Vintage. It has just always sounded bad to me, so I use Multi-Vintage, because it inspires conversation, for those paying attention...
