Estate Notes

Bollinger's Grande Annee Rosé is only released in 'great' years and yields from one harvest.

For the Grande Annee, Bollinger selects its 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

“Lots of fresh green elements on the nose. Tight texture and something very slightly yeasty/beery about this but very refreshing and confident. Real beginning, middle and end wine.” Jancis Robinson - tasted at the Royal Household Wine Committee tasting

"The 2004 Brut Rose La Grande Annee is a beautifully focused, vibrant wine endowed with striking minerality and fabulous overall balance. Clean veins of chalkiness run through the fruit in this energetic, taut Rose, while seductive floral notes linger on the finish. The 2004 is 68% Pinot Noir (including 5% still Pinot) and 32% Chardonnay, 89% from Grand Cru villages and 11% from Premier Crus. The 2004 is very young, but it is going to be nearly impossible to resist. It is a dazzling effort from Bollinger. Disgorged September 2011." eRobertParker.com

“…one of Champagne’s historic houses. From top to bottom, there isn’t anything Bollinger isn’t doing well these days.” eRobertParker.com
