Champagne Bollinger

La Grande Année 2014

0,75L

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.

The Structure

Freshness

Harmonious balance that exists between the different components of acidity.

Roundness

Soft Champagne easy to drink, the acidity does not hurt the mouth.

Strength

Generous champagne, with a great intensity.

Length in mouth

The aromas of Champagne persist in the mouth.

The Tasting

To the eye, a robe tinged with golden reflections, witness to the maturity of the wine, but also to the Bollinger winemaking methods.

A fruity nose, precise and finely iodized. Aromas of cherry and lemon mingle with quince and bergamot. In a second time, notes of hazelnut, almond, mirabelle plum and peach complete this aromatic palette.

On the palate, the wine opens with a fine and intense effervescence, followed by a beautiful vinosity and balanced by a delicate acidity. Its very fine texture and saline finish give it great length in the mouth accompanied by complex flavors of orchard fruits and citrus. An airy wine that unfolds gradually and then shows its full potential and intensity.

About this house

Since 1829, the House of Bollinger has been producing great champagnes with a powerful, refined and complex style. These virtuoso wines are the result of a constant quest for perfection: there is no room for guesswork at Bollinger. Bollinger is constantly striving for perfection, right down to the smallest detail.

An uncompromising independence of spirit, in the service of a distinction without ostentation: this elegance from the Champagne region has won over the British Crown, which, since 1884, has awarded the House the very prestigious Royal Warrant, the mark of the official suppliers to the Court.
