Bollinger la Grande Annee 2004
Its delicate blush and old gold colours are a sign of maturity and of Bollinger’s winemaking skills. Its Aromas are a testimony to the barrels it aged in: toasted bread and brandied fruit. Notes of exotic spices, rhubarb and stone fruit. Palate is powerful yet soft with remarkable structure and length. - Winemakers notes
External Reviews for Bollinger la Grande Annee
A gorgeously complex pure and refined nose of delicate red berry fruit yeast and brioche aromas introduce delicious fresh and strikingly intense flavors that are supported by an extravagant mousse that imparts a real sense of vibrancy to the dry yeasty and again impressively complex finish. This is a really impressive rosi that is drinking well now though depending on your taste preferences could also just as easily be held for another 5 to 10 years. Burghound.

Firm with well-cut acidity and a fine texture this is aromatic delivering a skein of ground spice and graphite notes that mesh seamlessly with the flavors of black currant black cherry toasted almond financier honey and smoky mineral. Offers a long mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2024.
A great Vintage Champagne from the esteemed house of Bollinger, long a favorite of the Royal Family of England. This 2004 reach a pinnacle with 95+ scores including 96 from Wine Enthusiast Magazine and 95 from Antonio Galloni who said "Bollinger's 2004 Brut La Grand Année is a beautiful wine with a lot of vintage character, but the style is a bit less oxidative than Bollinger fans are likely to expect. Pears, hazelnuts, spices and crushed rocks all flow through to the tense, vibrant finish. It will be interesting to see if the 2004 puts on weight in the bottle, as so many wines from this vintage have. Today, it is bright, linear and quite pretty. Green apples, pears and flowers all add lift on the close." Extremely Limited!!!
