Tasting Notes

To the eye: The delicate colour and golden hues are a sign of the wine’s maturity and reflective of Bollinger’s wine-making methods. To the nose: Full and expressive. Apricot, almond and hazelnut, followed by notes of honey and cereals intertwining in a symphony of aromas. On the palate: Exceptional texture and structure. Dense, silky with a long finish. Fresh and full with a delicious refined finish.

Producer details

La Grande Année is the embodiment of the carefully preserved traditional expertise of the Bollinger Champagne House. The wine is therefore exclusively vinified in small aged oak barrels. Champagne Bollinger has never abandoned this traditional craft method, which helps develop aromas of great finesse. After a prolonged ageing on its lees, even today every bottle of La Grande Année is riddled and disgorged by hand.

In the vineyard

21 crus: Mainly A˙ and Verzenay for the Pinot Noir, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger and Oiry for the Chardonnay. Exclusive use of the cuvée. Fermented entirely in aged oak barrels. At Bollinger, only very high quality harvests become a vintage: the exceptional 2012 vintage led to Bollinger creating expressive wines that were simultaneously full, fresh and complex. Maturation: Sealed with a natural cork and cellar aged for more than twice the time required by the appellation. Dosage: Moderate, 8 grams per litre.

Food Recommendations
