Full, rich & expressive.
Tasting Notes: To the eye, the delicate colour and golden hues reflect the wine’s maturity and reflective of Bollinger’s wine-making methods. The nose displays precise and fruity notes with a hint of sea-air. Aromas of cherry and lemon intertwine with quince and bergamot, followed by notes of hazelnut and almond, peach and mirabelle plum. On the palate, the initial sensation is a delicate effervescence followed by wonderful vinosity balanced with delicate acidity. Its very fine texture and saline finish bring excellent length to the palate, accompanied by delicate minerality and complex flavours of orchard fruit and citrus. The wine unfurls gradually, revealing its full potential and wonderful intensity.
Best served between 8 and 10°C. Ready to enjoy now but will age well in the cellar for up to 15 years.
“The 2014 La Grande Année is stunning. In fact, it is one of the best recent editions I can remember tasting. What comes through most is the wine’s sizzling energy and tension.” 98/100 Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, 7th March 2022 Bollinger La Grande Anneé 2014
