($850) Light gold with a steady bead of pinpoint bubbles. Deep, musky aromas of buttered toast, cherry pit, blood orange, lemon rind, pungent herbs and yellow rose, with mounting spiciness. Deeply concentrated but showing unlikely finesse, with firm,... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

93 Points - The Wine Advocate"The 2000 Brut La Grande Annee shows incredible elegance and finesse in a mid-weight, totally sublime style. The wine remains fresh and nuanced throughout, with a polished mousse and exceptional overall balance. Notes of toastiness come to life on the long, creamy finish. The Grande Annee is 63% Pinot Noir and 37% Chardonnay sourced from 76% Grand Cru and 24% Premier Cru vineyards. This bottle was disgorged in January, 2009. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2020."93 Points - International Wine Cellar"Light, bright gold with an energetic bead. Precise lemon zest and orange aromas are complemented by deeper notes of pear skin, honey, almond and chamomile, with a subtle mineral quality gaining strength with air. Youthful and surprisingly lithe for a wine from this house, with spicy citrus and orchard fruit flavors joined by smoky minerality and nuttiness on the back end. The honey note returns on the long, spicy sappy finish. I like this wine's balance and cut."92 Points - Wine Spectator"A full, robust Champagne, delivering plenty of gingerbread, toast and citrus aromas and flavors. Balanced in an extroverted way, with a fine texture, this is approachable now. Should continue to develop. Drink now through 2020."Winemaker's notes:The grapes come exclusively from Grands and Premiers Crus. 17 villages have entered in the 1999 blend, 82% from Grands Crus and 18% from Premiers Crus. The blend of La Grande Anne 1999 is composed of 63% Pinot Noir and 37% Chardonnay.La Grande Anne is the Prestige Cuve of Champagne Bollinger. It is only produced when exceptional quality harvests occur, and is the expression of Bollinger's know-how. More than the illustration of the vintage particularity, La Grande Anne is the result of the Bollinger style, of its exceptional "terroir" and traditional wine making techniques. La Grande Anne develops a beautiful rounded structure and combines rich, complex and intense aromas, the expression of which changes according to the characteristics of the vintage.

Die Spéciale Cuvée ist besonders charakteristisch für den «Style Bollinger». Das Wissen von Champagne Bollinger zeigt sich in der Fähigkeit, jedes Jahr erneut eine Assemblage zu schaffen, die hinsichtlich Stil und Qualität einheitlich ist und in der das Bouquet der Aromen neu zusammengesetzt wird – woraus immer wieder diese einzigartige Mischung aus Körper, Harmonie, Weinigkeit und Eleganz entsteht. In diesem Wein drückt sich der unverwechselbare Charakter aus, für ihn werden die Qualitäten ausgesucht, und nach ihm möchte Champagne Bollinger bewertet werden.

Winemaker's Notes:

The Millennium Bollinger is a very impressive effort indeed. The<br/>2000 vintage in Champagne was not dissimilar to 1999, its quality<br/>only undermined by dramatic mid-summer hail, its structure leaning<br/>towards the relatively low acidity and broad approachable fruit<br/>character of its forebear. Overall it's looking better than 1999, with wines of<br/>more energy and concentration evidenced. Good but not great as a vintage. The<br/>Bollinger 2000, however, belongs firmly in the <em>great</em> category.<br/>It is stylistically similar to the 1999 except better.<br/> <br/>The fermentation in old wood lends characteristic vanillin notes, the 63%<br/>Pinot Noir adding a savoury backdrop, the balance of Chardonnay a citric<br/>freshness. The palate is very clean and very pure; its weight worn lightly with<br/>an almost silky elegance. 6 years of lees ageing lends biscuity complexity and<br/>the finish is accompanied by gentle spice and hazelnut. A very complete wine,<br/>rich and powerful as one would expect but with astonishing finesse.<br/>(Simon Field MW - Berrys' Champagne Buyer)
