Bollinger Champagne La Grande Annee 2005

Bollinger Champagne La Grande Annee 750ML 2005    
Sku: 13972

The Bollinger Grande Année remains, however, a blended wine from crus and grape varieties. In this sense it too carries the expression of the House style. However, in this case, the style is also dependent on the characteristics of the given vintage. It is the best wine Bollinger can produce in an individual year by exposing its particular character.

Rating
"A blend of 66% Pinot Noir and 34% Chardonnay, thisis opulent and full bodied, with toast and wood flavors. Rich and ripe, this beautiful wine is generous and still young, with just a touch of bitterness at the end. Cellar Selection." 96 Points Wine Enthusiast

"Firm, with well-cut acidity and a fine texture, this is aromatic, delivering a skein of ground spice and graphite notes that mesh seamlessly with the flavors of black currant, black cherry, toasted almond, financier, honey and smoky mineral. Offers a long, mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2024. " 94 Points Wine Spectator


Wine maker notes
The delicate blush and old gold colors of the 2004 La Grande Annee are a sign of maturity and of Bollinger's winemaking skills. Its aromas are a testimony to the barrels it's aged in: toasted bread and brandied fruit, plus notes of exotic spices, rhubarb and stone fruit. The bubbles are powerful yet soft and there is remarkable structure and length on the palate.

Blend: 66% Pinot Noir, 34% Chardonnay
