One of the Grande Marques of Champagne, Bollinger has a long history in Aÿ dating back to 1829 when it was founded by Athanase de Villermont, Joseph Bollinger, and Paul Renaudin. The House makes some of the most full-bodied, rich and powerful style Champagne, with a Pinot-dominant style, use of barrel aging and being slightly oxidative. They have an impressive range to offer from their portfolio and the La Grande Annee is one of the more widely popular from the selection. The La Grande Annee is a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and is aged at least 6 years with lees.

Bollinger La Grande Annee Brut 2002 HK$1,190 per bottle Special Offer: HK$1,150 per bottle (Valid until 2nd July 2021) 12 bottles available, ETA 2-3 weeks 97pts James Suckling A stunning edition of one of the great vintage Champagnes that sees immense power and freshness carry the inherent complexity that is the cornerstone of the Bollinger style. Lemon rind, chalk, lime juice and light-grilled nuts here, this has terrific freshness and fragrant lift, gently sweet biscuity complexity here too. The palate's crisp, powerful, assertive and long, delivering a wealth of apple, melon and citrus fruit flavour amid lemon biscuit, almond nougat and a jousting savoury vs. cleansing finish. It's superb now, but will grow and develop handsomely for some years if well cellared. (2012) 94pts Wine Advocate The 2002 Brut La Grande Annee is marvelous. The 2002 is an understated Grande Annee that caresses the palate with layers of effortless, weightless fruit. The mousse is exceptionally fine, which adds to the impression of total elegance. This is a relatively bright, floral Grande Annee with plenty of aromatic lift, inner perfume and no sense of heaviness at all. A rich, creamy finish adds the final note of complexity and pedigree. The 2002 is 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay, 71% from Grand Cru villages and 29% from Premier Crus. Disgorged February 2011. (2011) 94pts Wine Spectator Ripe, appealing flavors of peach, Gala apple, toast and blood orange mix with a streak of minerality, racy acidity and spice notes, all set on the fine-grained texture. Fresh and focused, with a long, mouthwatering, nut-tinged finish. *Highly Recommended* (2011)
