Bollinger La Grande Année 2007 Champagne

More vintages: 2002, 2005The Bollinger Champagne House has created prestigious champagnes with character, distinguished by their elegance and complexity, since 1829. The story began with Athanase de Villermont, the youngest son of a noble family. He inherited an extensive estate from his family in the A˙ region. He immediately foresaw the extraordinary potential of the wines of Champagne. Upon meeting Joseph Bollinger, a widely travelled German who left his country to learn about Champagne, and Paul Renaudin, a local man fascinated by the world of wine, the firm of Renaudin-Bollinger & Cie was founded on 6th February 1829. Owning 164 hectares of vineyards of which 85% are Grand Cru and Premier Cru vines, Bollinger is one of the few champagne Houses to produce the majority of their own grapes for their blends.

In 1976, Bollinger Vintage became Grande Année; then, in 1997, "La" Grande Année... A name simple enough to illustrate its exceptional status: because only truly extraordinary years become vintage at Bollinger. La Grande Année made its screen débuts two years later, in James Bond's Casino Royale. This vintage was entirely fermented in barrels and is produced from 13 crus: mainly A˙ and Verzenay for the Pinot Noir and Avize, Chouilly and Mesnil-sur-Oger for the Chardonnay - 95% Grand Crus and 5% Premier Crus were used. At Bollinger, only very high quality harvests become vintage.

The delicate colour of this Champagne characterise the wine's maturity and Bollinger's wine-making methods. On the nose, initial scents of almonds and fleshy fruits such as mangos, combine with citrus notes and grapefruit. On the palate the citrus notes continue and lead the way for a honeyed flavours with a long lasting refreshing finish. A champagne that will age really well.

Grape Varieties: 70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay

“It might seem a bit surprising that Bollinger skipped the great vintage of 2006 for the more modest 2007. For me that choice is however quite logical since the Bollinger house style is much better suited to austere vintages than for fruit bombs. Here we have a classic and perfectly balanced Bollinger with deep layers and beautiful crisp apple acidity. Gorgeous balance between the dark and light as a perfect Ying and Yang marriage. Layers of dry cocoa, hazelnut fudge, dried apricots and juicy red apples dominate over a beautiful hint of forest aromas based on sous bois and mushrooms in the background. One of the three best champagnes from this vintage.”
