In 1976, Bollinger Vintage became Grande Année; then, in 1997, “La” Grande Année... A name simple enough to illustrate its exceptional status: because only truly extraordinary years become vintage at Bollinger. La Grande Année made its screen débuts two years later, in James Bond’s Casino Royale. Bollinger’s prestige champagne is produced only when the harvest reaches a perfect balance.

Technical informations

Production area: 14 crus:  mainly Aÿ and Verzenay for the Pinot Noir, Cramant and Oger for the Chardonnay. 91% Grands crus and 9% Premier crus. Exclusive use of the cuvee.

Grapes and blend: 70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay.

Vinification and ageing: at Bollinger, only very high quality harvests become vintage: the very early harvest and fresh qualities of the year 2007 make this vintage exceptional. Fermented entirely in barrels. Maturation: cellar aged for more than twice the time required by the appellation. Sealed with a natural cork whilst ageing.

Sensory

Colour: the delicate colour and golden hues are a sign of the wine’s maturity and Bollinger’s wine-making methods.

Perlage: fine, elegant and persistent.

Bouquet: a first impression of fresh almonds, then yellow-flesh fruit aromas evoking peach and mango; toasted, roasted notes accompanied with dried citrus and pink grapefruit.
 
Taste: a lovely aromatic fullness with honey flavours and a smooth chalky texture; candied lemon notes and a delicious bitterness, a wonderfully refreshing finish.
