Bollinger Grande Annee 75cl

£115.00
Country: FranceSuggested Food Pairing: Shellfish
65% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay.  21 crus:  mainly Aÿ and Verzenay for the Pinot Noir, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger and Oiry for the Chardonnay. Fermented entirely in barrels. Sealed with a natural cork and cellar aged for more than twice the time required by the appellation. The delicate colour and golden hues are a sign of the wine’s maturity and Bollinger’s wine-making methods. Full and expressive. Apricot, almond and hazelnut, followed by notes of honey and cereals intertwining in a symphony of aromas. Exceptional texture and structure. Dense, silky with a long finish. Fresh and full with a delicious refined finish. The embodiment of the carefully preserved traditional expertise of the Bollinger Champagne House. The wine is therefore exclusively vinified in small aged oak barrels. Champagne Bollinger has never abandoned this traditional craft method, which helps develop aromas of great finesse. After a prolonged ageing on its lees, even today every bottle of La Grande Annee is riddled and disgorged by hand.
