Description

“Very firm, savoury nose with Bollinger’s trademark fungi. Very powerfully but with excellent acidity and lift on the palate. It has real weight – though does not taste heavy. I loved it on first release as Grande Année and it is less austere now. A bit mellower and more open though still with the deep throat salve sensation on the finish.”

Bollinger R.D. 2002

Aromas of stewed, ripe quince and hints of honey, followed by cocoa and finishing with roasted spices such as nutmeg and anise. A full bodied style but superbly balanced with a persistent flavour. Minerality resonates on the finish with touches of lemon revealing a pleasing bitterness.
