Description & Technical Information
-
In 1976, Bollinger Vintage was re-named Grande Année. Then in 1997, it became La Grande Année - 'The Great Year' - 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 is entirely fermented in oak barrel and is produced from thirteen crus: 95% Grand Cru and 5% Premier Cru.

Weather: In general, 2005 was warm and dry. After a winter which was hard but mostly dry, spring was characterised as being very mild with a few warm periods. After a period of concentrated rainfall towards the end of June and beginning of July, the rest of July was dominated by hot weather, and August by cool weather.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 95% Grand Cru, 5% Premier Cru | Pinot Noir: Aÿ, Verzenay | Chardonnay: Avize, Chouilly, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger
Grape Varieties: 70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay
Ageing: 6 years on the lees
Disgorged: October 2014
Dosage: 6 g/l
Drink: Now to 2033

Tasting Note: The delicate colour of this champagne characterises both the wine's maturity and Bollinger's winemaking methods. On the nose, initial honey and gingerbread aromas shine through whilst the palate offers ripe fruit flavours with hints of vanilla. This creamy flavour and subtle acidity combine to leave a long finish - this is a complex champagne and one of the best expressions of the 2005 vintage.

Bollinger La Grande Année 2005 1.5L magnums do not come in a gift box and will be delivered in an unbranded cardboard box.
