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: The 2002 vintage shaped up magnificently over the spring, with no significant frost and near-perfect flowering. Then followed a summer marked by long, sunny periods interspersed with regular cloudy and rainy spells. The vines were in good health and the dehydration of the grape berries helped them reach new heights of ripeness. Generally considered one of the best harvests in the last twenty years.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 95% Grand Cru, 5% Premier Cru | Pinot Noir: Aÿ, Verzenay | Chardonnay: Avize, Chouilly, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger
Grape Varieties: 60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay
Ageing: 6 years on the lees
Dosage: 6 g/l
Drink: Now to 2030

Tasting Note: A champagne with extreme layers of fruit and floral notes. On the nose it has a powerful fruit element that continues through to the palate. Aromatic and creamy tastes add to a long-lasting finish. An incredible expression of a legendary vintage.
