• Bollinger 2008 La Grande Annee Brut Champagne

Bollinger's 2008 La Grande Année is superb, wafting from the glass with aromas of crisp orchard fruit, ripe lemons, honeycomb, warm biscuits, dried white flowers and a delicate top note of walnuts and fino sherry. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, broad and vinous, with a beautifully refined mousse, superb concentration at the tightly wound core, incisive acids and a supremely elegant intermingling of Bollinger's oxidative stylistic signatures with fresh, vibrant fruit. The finish is long, precise and chalky. This is a Grande Année built for the cellar—the real excitement will come with a bit more bottle age—but this is already a thrilling Champagne in the making. Finished with eight grams per liter dosage, it was disgorged by hand in July 2018. This is also the first vintage of Grande Année to be bottled in Bollinger's new narrower-necked 1846 bottle, which should make for a slower evolving wine. 97+ Points, The Wine Advocate, March 2019

Enticing hints of toasted cumin, ground anise and graphite waft from the glass of this harmonious, mouthwatering version, accenting the finely meshed flavors of crushed black currant, poached apricot, grilled nut and lemon curd. The texture shows a lovely viscosity, extending the flavor range, which expands on the lasting finish. Disgorged June 2018. Drink now through 2033. 833 cases 96 Points Wine Spectator, December 2019

La Grande Année 2008 is from one of the most anticipated vintages since the start of the 21st century. The exceptional 2008 harvest resulted in a wine of infinite depth, concentration, and freshness. It expresses its distinctiveness in this deep, complex and harmonious wine. The clear wines were very promising: the Chardonnays were pure and straight and the Pinot Noirs rich and expressive. These two grape varieties compliment each other to give a blend with a rare balance. It has great aging potential. Winemaker Notes
