Bollinger Brut Champagne la Grande Annee 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

94-95 points Richard Juhlin: (70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay). It may seem surprising that Bollinger jumped over the estimated 2006 vintage and instead betting on the underdog year 2007. For me, the choice is entirely logical when the house style lends itself much better than the austere years as fruit bombs. Here we have a classically balanced Bollinger with deep flavor layers and tight beautiful malic acids. Brilliant balance between the dark well of depth and refreshing crispness. Layers of dry cocoa, hazelnut cream, dried apricots and red juicy apples dominates a beautiful forest aroma of undergrowth and chanterelles. (Oct 2016)

The House lets its wines mature for twice as long as the appellation requirement. This is not out of vanity, but because a great wine needs the luxury of time to develop its full character.
