Estate Notes

Bollinger's Grande Annee is only released in 'great' years and yields from one harvest. It is selected from the best wines from its crus and ferments them individually in oak casks prior to blending. The wine is aged for a minimum of five years in its bottle prior to release.

Established in the early 19th century by Jacques Bollinger and Paul Renaudin, Bollinger remains under the control of the wider family and is synonymous with rich, complex, classic Pinot Noir dominated Champagnes with great aging potential. Around 75% of Bollinger’s grapes are harvested from its own vineyards to ensure quality.

Reviews

"Classically styled; one of the all-time greats in standard vintage Champagne. Firm yet elegant, with plenty of smoke, apple and toast character, a fine, silky texture and great acidity.” Wine Spectator

"Bollinger produces one of the most consistent lineups in Champagne. Bollinger is one of the handful of larger firms that manages to put out consistently high quality wines despite its size. This estate based in Ay is probably best known to the public through its long association with the James Bond films, which is quite possibly one of the most successful product placement campaigns of all time. Despite the show biz glamor that has inextricably become part of the Bollinger mystique, at their best these are serious wines with significant aging potential." eRobertParker.com
