Bollinger makes some of the most full-bodied, rich and powerful style Champagne among the top houses. With a Pinot-dominant style, use of barrel-aging and being slightly oxidative, we are one of their die-hard fans around the world. Being one of the famous cuvees from Bollinger, La Grande Annee 2005 is composed of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay, blended from 95% Grand Crus and 5% 1er Crus vineyards. 2005 being a hot vintage in Champagne, it allows drinkers to enjoy it younger than usual which it offers rich, powerful ripe-fruit flavours.
At this price point and with great quality, we can't see why you shouldn't secure a case or two! -
Bollinger La Grande Année 2005 HK$700 per bottle Special offer – HK$650 per bottle if you buy three bottles or more (Valid until 11th Oct 2018) 94 pts Wine Spectator A powerful, structured and graceful 2005, showing deft integration of the rich, chalky underpinning, firm acidity and expansive flavors of crushed black currant, spring blossom, toasted almond, crystallized honey and preserved lemon. Offers a fine, raw silk-like mousse and a long, spiced finish. Disgorged February 2015. Drink now through 2030.
94 pts James Suckling Impressive concentration and power here. This is really assertive with ripe yellow orchard fruits and citrus within a core encased in a layer of more savory, toasty notes on both the nose and palate. There's that gentle hint of aldehyde that is the traditional stamp of the house plus savory woody notes, white mushrooms and some chalk and spices, too. The palate has a fleshy opening, filling out with peach and hazelnut flavors before a smooth ride to the finish. Approachable and complex.
17 out of 20 pts Jancis Robinson Relatively deep gold. Mushroomy, weighty, very serious with a dry finish. Very Bollinger. Lively and admirable. Quite long.
