Estate Notes

Bollinger's Grand Annee 1990 (magnum) comes from a truly excellent year, indeed one of the best of the last century.

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.

" showing beautifully at present. A delightful, crisp nose of brioche, apple-blossom, a hint of nougat, praline and cashew nuts all with wonderful definition and vibrancy. The palate is showing very good fruit concentration, very smooth and slightly honeyed in texture, it almost had me guessing that it was another VVF having just tasted the ’92. Great mineralite towards the finish, elegant and beautifully poised with that praline notes coming back on the aftertaste. All you could wish for in a ’90 champagne.”

"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."
