La Grande Année 2014
Intensity and Minerality
La Grande Année is the embodiment of the craftsmanship that has always been preserved by Maison Bollinger. The wine is thus exclusively vinified in small old oak barrels. Champagne Bollinger has never abandoned this very old method, which promotes the development of aromas of great finesse. After prolonged aging on the lees, each bottle of La Grande Année is still stirred and disgorged by hand.
Discover the note
Discover the structure of this Champagne
Harmonious balance between the various components of acidity.
Supple, easy-drinking champagne, the acidity doesn't clash with the palate.
Generous champagne with great intensity.
Long on the palate
Champagne aromas linger on the palate.
To the eye, a robe tinged with golden reflections, bearing witness not only to the wine's maturity, but also to the winemaking methods used Bollinger.
The nose is fruity, precise and delicately iodized. Aromas of cherry and lemon mingle with quince and bergamot. Notes of hazelnut, almond, mirabelle plum and peach complete the aromatic palette.
On the palate, the wine opens with fine, intense effervescence, followed by fine vinosity and balanced by delicate acidity. Its very fine texture and saline finish give it great length on the palate, accompanied by complex flavors of orchard fruit and citrus. An airy wine that gradually unfolds to show its full potential and intensity.
