In 1976, Bollinger Vintage became Grande Année; then, in 1997, “La” Grande. Année, 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. La Grande Année is the embodiment of the carefully preserved traditional expertise of the Bollinger Champagne House. The wine is therefore exclusively vinified in small aged oak barrels. Champagne Bollinger has never abandoned this traditional craft method, which helps develop aromas of great finesse. After a prolonged ageing on its lees, even today every bottle of La Grande Année is riddled and disgorged by hand.

Production area: Aÿ, Avenay, Tauxières, Louvois, Verzenay
Blend of the 2012 vintage: 65% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay. 21 crus: mainly Aÿ and Verzenay for the Pinot Noir, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger and Oiry for the Chardonnay. Exclusive use of the cuvée.
Technical data: Fermented entirely in aged oak barrels. At Bollinger, only very high quality harvests become a vintage: the exceptional 2012 vintage led to Bollinger creating expressive wines that were simultaneously full, fresh and complex. Maturation: Sealed with a natural cork and cellar aged for more than twice the time required by the Appellation. Dosage: Moderate, 8 grams per litre.
Colour: The delicate colour and golden hues are a sign of the wine’s maturity and reflective of Bollinger’s wine-making methods.
Nose: full and expressive. Apricot, almond and hazelnut, followed by notes of honey and cereals intertwining in a symphony of aromas.
Palate: exceptional texture and structure. Dense, silky with a long finish. Fresh and full with a delicious refined finish.
Pairings: Scallops with sorrel and vanilla. Grilled oyster, smoked butter and sea purslane. Hen of the woods mushroom, potato emulsion and truffle. La Grande Année 2012 is the perfect champagne for gourmet food. To fully appreciate its unique style and aromas, La Grande Année 2012 is best served between 8 and 10°C. You can enjoy La Grande Année 2012 now or choose to age it in your cellar.
