Ripe, appealing flavors of peach, Gala apple, toast and blood orange mix with a streak of minerality and notes of spice, all set on the fine-grained texture. Fresh and focused, with racy acidity and a long, mouthwatering, nut-tinged finish. Drink now through 2025.

Light gold. Ripe pear and honey on the explosively perfumed nose, with sexy floral and marzipan nuances expanding with air. Fat, full and palate-coating, boasting impressive power and thrust. Shows an intriguing blend of richness and energy and finishes long, with smoky and spicy nuances.

Reife und komplexe Nase nach Äpfeln und Zitronen. Feine Aromen nach Brioche und Mandeln mit einer leicht floralen Note. Mittleres Aufschäumen, kräftiger Körper, dichte Struktur mit langem, trockenem Finale.

Bollinger only releases vintage champagne in great years, thus the denomination Grande Année. On average 95% of the grapes come from Premier and Grands Crus villages. The wines are individually fermented in oak casks before blending and aged for a minimum of five years in the cellar under cork. Blend: 65% Pinot Noir and 35% Chardonnay.

In der Nase kündigt sich an, was von einer «Cuvée Prestige» erwartet werden kann: Charakter, Tiefgründigkeit und Harmonie. Die Sinneseindrücke im Bouquet sind vielschichtig und nuanciert. Die Aromapalette reicht von Beeren über frische Früchte zu dezenten Noten von Brioche und Honig. Der weitere Verlauf zeugt von einer grossartigen Cuvée: elegant, fein und trotzdem nachhaltig, anhaltend. Das Optimum zwischen filigraner Fruchtigkeit und struktureller Nachhaltigkeit stellt sich im Gaumen und im Finale ein. La Grande Année Rosé basiert auf der Assemblage der La Grande Année, der 7 bis 8% Rotwein aus der Einzellage Côte aux Enfants hinzugefügt wird, die dem Wein seine fülligen, runden und fruchtigen Eigenschaften gibt. Sie ist auch Ergebnis des unverkennbaren «Style Bollinger».

The 2002 Brut La Grande Annee is marvelous. The 2002 is an understated Grande Annee that caresses the palate with layers of effortless, weightless fruit. The mousse is exceptionally fine, which adds to the impression of total elegance. This is a relatively bright, floral Grande Annee with plenty of aromatic lift, inner perfume and no sense of heaviness at all. A rich, creamy finish adds the final note of complexity and pedigree. The 2002 is 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay, 71% from Grand Cru villages and 29% from Premier Crus. Disgorged February 2011. Anticipated maturity: 2012–2022.
