Bollinger’s prestige cuvée is the vintage-dated La Grande Année, made of roughly two-thirds Pinot Noir and one-third Chardonnay. It is produced only when the harvest reaches a perfect balance. This wine ferments entirely in oak barrels, and undergoes its second fermentation under cork instead of crown capsule. It’s filled with aromas of honey, gingerbread and cinnamon, and offers a core of pastry and candied orange flavors on the palate. This prestige cuvée made its silver screen debut in 1978, in James Bond’s Casino Royale

Winemaker Notes

Gilles Descôtes

Bollinger Champagne

by Gilles Descôtes
Disgorged in 2019, Bollinger's La Grande Année Brut 2012 is showing well, offering up an incipiently complex bouquet of crisp yellow orchard fruit, fresh peach, orange oil, toasted walnuts and dried apricot. Full and expressive, the palate has exceptional texture, concentration and structure, and the finish is dense, silky and chalky
