Bollinger's Grande Année 1988 was purchased in its original wooden case and is in excellent condition.
The Grande Année is only released in 'great' years and yields from one harvest, from which 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.
