A prestigious vintage champagne signed Bollinger

The Estate
Timeless and mythical, the Champagne House Bollinger, nicknamed "Boll" for the Champenois or "Boly" for the English, is part of the small circle of the very large houses of Champagne. The style of Champagne Bollinger is defined by the exemplary precision brought to each moment of the elaboration. Respect for tradition, hand riddling of bottles, corking of reserve magnum bottles, the last remaining cooper in the Champagne region, this taste for excellence symbolises the entire culture of Champagne Bollinger. More than an art, it is a heritage.

The vineyard
La Grande Année 2012 comes from 21 exceptional vintages of the Côte des Blancs and the Montagne de Reims. Mostly from Ay and Verzenay for the Pinot Noir, the chardonays completing the blend are mainly from Le Mesnil-sur-Oger and Oiry.

The vintage
La Grande Année is only vinified in the case of an exceptional vintage with a perfect balance of berries. The 2012 vintage delivers generous, lively and complex wines.

Blend
La Grande Année 2012 pays tribute to the two great grape varieties of Champagne. This cuvée is blended mainly with pinot noir (65%) supplemented by the chardonnay(35%).
