Champagne Bollinger was established in 1829 by Jacques Bollinger and to this day is still family owned. Benefitting from ownership of 164 hectares of vineyards in the finest Premier and Grand Cru sites the highest quality fruit is secure, the majority of which is Pinot Noir.
La Grande Année is Bollinger’s Prestige Cuvée and is only produced when exceptional vintages occur. The grapes come exclusively from Grand and Premier Crus. The 2002 vintage is a blend of 16 villages, 75% of which were Grand Cru and 25% from Premiers Cru.
Bollinger use only the ‘cuvée’ juice in the making of La Grande Année. The first fermentation is always carried out 100% in old oak barrels, which is quite exceptional in Champagne. The wine is aged on its lees for a minimum of 5 years, often more. After manual riddling and disgorging, the wine rests for a minimum of 3 months prior to shipment.
Rich gold, almost pink showing the maturity of the wine. Toasty, candied fruits, notes of exotic spices, rhubarb, stone fruit. Silky bubbles, full bodied, wonderful length and concentration.
How to Serve
The structure of La Grande Année complements richer foods such as foie gras, sweetbreads, game and aromatic cheeses.
