Bollinger Champagne Blend Champagne R.D. Extra Brut 1990

Winemaker's Notes:

1990 was indeed a 'Grande Annee' for champagne and Bollinger have disgorged this cuvee later than usual to add further complexity and body. The palate is creamy and rich with a long finish.

Bollinger:
The Bollinger vineyard covers 164 hectares, most of which are classified Grand or Premier cru. Pinot Noir predominates, a demanding grape variety with an intense character which forms the backbone of the Bollinger style.

The Bollinger vineyard covers 164 hectares, most of which are classified Grand or Premier cru. Pinot Noir predominates, a demanding grape variety with an intense character which forms the backbone of the Bollinger style. Continuity of style is ensured by an exceptional collection of over 600,000 reserve magnums, making Bollinger the only champagne House with such a wide and precise palette of aromas for their blends.   As a guarantee of supreme quality, the best crus are vinified in wood thanks to a stock of 3,000 small, aged casks. The House lets its wines mature for twice as long as the appellation requirement. This is not out of vanity, but because a great wine needs the luxury of time to develop its full character.

Light straw in color with fine bubbles. The nose showed honey, almonds, marzipan, and distinct green apple. Medium acidity it seemed a bit oxidized though not unpleasantly so. Flavors of carmel, apple, yeast and more honey rounded out the palate. I wish there were less of us so that we could have had more! So tasty! So much fun! [NR]

A sense of opulence marks this highly concentrated, creamy-textured 1990 Champagne, with its ripe, generous fruit flavors complementing the toasty, honeyed nuances acquired from aging on the lees. Lingering finish. Drink now through 2004. 20,000 case... Wine Spectator. A Champagne Blend wine from Champagne in France. 1990 Bollinger Grande Annee 750ml
