Tasting Note:
Big and powerful, this Champagne emits a pine aroma initially,
exhibiting fine concentration and complexity. Rich, with some
honey, nut and toast flavours, it has enough acidity to keep it lively
and fresh. Typically 'Bollinger' style of concentrated, complex
layers and a soft finish.
Winemaking:
The House of Bollinger only produces vintage champagnes in
exceptional years, when the grapes have reached a perfect quality
and maturity with a perfect balance between the acids and
sugars. Hence the denomination "Grande Année" given to this
champagne which, unlike the "Special Cuvée", is only produced
from grapes of that particular harvest. The grape supply comes
only from grands crus and premiers crus vineyards of
Champagne, 16 different crus are used in the assemblage of the
Grande Année, 75 % from grands crus and 25 % from premiers
crus. These were mainly from the villages of Aÿ, Bouzy, Louvois,
Verzenay, Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, Mesnil s/Oger, Oger, Cuis, Cramant and
Chouilly.
Vineyard :
The first fermentation was done in small oak casks (205, 225 and
410 litres), lot by lot, cru by cru, grape variety by grape variety. This
allows Bollinger to use a very strict selection process. Bollinger
only uses old casks (5 years old or older) to ensure that neither
tannin nor oak flavours are imparted to the wines. This method
increases both the aromatic complexity and the ageing capacity
of such wines. After bottling, the second fermentation and the
ageing in the cellars, is done using a real cork stopper, which
ensures a better barrier against oxidization than the crown cap.
This process, quite unique in champagne, is a guarantee of
freshness and allows the aromas to keep their bouquet and
clearness. After disgorging by hand, Grande Année rests for a
minimum of 3 months before shipping. This is necessary for the
wine to assimilate the "liqueur d'expédition" and recover from the
shock created by disgorgement.
Food matching:
Best enjoyed on its own as a digestif or dessert, however also
fantastic with dishes such as these: steamed fish fillets with
scallion-ginger oil, grilled asparagus with saffron aioli.
