Quick Overview

A rich lemon colour in the glass, the fermentation of the base wine in oak and a long period of maturation in bottle is immediately evident in the colour of this 2005 Bollinger “La Grande Annee”. Whilst the aromas of this Champagne are not particularly pronounced, there is a persistent chalkiness, enlivened by wild flowers and apple aromas. A somewhat reticent toastiness and brioche sweetness appears slowly with a hint of ginger.

Gorgeously rich and luxuriously creamy on the palate, this 2005 Bollinger “La Grande Annee” retains balance by offsetting the richer peach, brioche and toasted notes by including the acidity and flavour of a red apple’s flesh and that persistent chalky minerality. There is certainly power here, but nuance too and few vintage Champagnes offer length greater length than this 2005 Bollinger “La Grande Annee”.

Details

Lily Bollinger's famous qoute to a newspaper in the 1960s has stuck with many wine lovers as a creed ever since: "I drink it when I'm happy and when I'm sad. Sometimes I drink it when I'm alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I'm not hungry and I drink it when I am. Otherwise I never touch it, unless I'm thirsty." This is the very fine vintage Champagne made in only outstanding vintages, or "Grande Années".
