Bollinger, Grande Année, AOC Champagne 2012Regular price €129.00
This is a simply magnificent dining wine—a gourmet treat.
The delicate golden colour of the Grande Année is a sign of the wine’s maturity, matched on the nose by a wonderful aromatic depth of fruity, spicy and floral notes suggestive of peach, plum and citrus peel shaped by fresh, mineral focus.
In the mouth, a creamy effervescence is supported by smooth, fresh flavours of fruit interwoven with all the complementary notes of the aromatic range, before a cleansing, gently saline finish.
The Grande Année bottling is the summation of the traditional skills and craftsmanship of the Bollinger house. It is a wine that is vinified in small aged oak barrels in the traditional style to give aromas of great finesse and subtlety. When the long lees ageing is complete, every bottle of this vintage selection is riddled and disgorged by hand in time-honoured fashion.
