About: The House of Bollinger only produces vintage champagnes in exceptional years when the grapes have reached a perfect quality and maturity with a perfect balance between the acids and sugars. In 1976 Bollinger Vintage became Grande Annee and then in 2004 La Grande Annee.....a name simple enough to illustrate its exceptional status - only truly exceptional years become vintage at Bollinger. La Grande Annee made its screen debuts two years later in James Bond's Casino Royale with Daniel Craig.
Current Vintage: 2012 An exceptional vintage in Champagne. Despite low yields thanks to frost, hail and disease early in the season, August saw conditions improve dramatically resulting in exemplary maturity, acidity and grape health at harvest.
Tasting Notes: On the nose, initial scents of almonds and fleshy fruits such as mango combine with citrus notes and grapefruit. On the palate, the citrus notes continue and lead the way for honeyed flavours and a long lasting refreshing finish. A champagne that will age really well.
