On the eye: The delicate colour and golden hues are a sign of the wine’s maturity and reflective of Bollinger’s winemaking methods.
On the nose: A wonderful aromatic depth. The wine’s fruit-driven, spicy and floral notes intertwine to reveal a highly complex nose, wild peach, plum and orange peel precede saffron and tonka bean, complemented by fresh, mineral notes.
On the palate: Dense and harmonious in the mouth. A creamy effervescence and fresh structure, with a gentle saline finish.
Note: This last release isn't available in the 2008 gift box.
Why is Grande Année so special?
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.
