La Grande Annee is Bollinger's prestige blend, produced only when a harvest reaches a perfect balance. It is Bollinger's interpretation of an exceptional year. Grapes solely from Grands and Premiers cru vineyards are vinified to reveal a harmonious blend that develops a majestic vinosity, and intense, rich complex aromas.

Its Origins

Champagne Bollinger was established in 1829 and has steadily grown under family stewardship. A reputaion has been established for Pinot-dominant wines occupying the powerful end of the Champagne spectrum, with a large majority of fruit sourced from their own vineyards and undergoing fermentation in oak and extensive lees aging for texture. Bollinger is now among the leading exponents and reference points of this mouth-filling and 'masculine' style.

What The Critics Say

94/100 Stephen Reinhardt

Bollinger's white-golden colored 2007 La Grande Anne Brut is an assemblage of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay from 14 crus (mainly A and Verzenay for the Pinot Noir and Avize, Cramant and Oger for the Chardonnay) that was entirely fermented in barrels and aged under natural cork for more than eight years (disgorgement date: November 2016). The wine displays a very clear, fine and complex bouquet of ripe (apricot) fruits and pink grapefruit along with chalky, toasty and almond/nougat notes. Highly elegant, fine and pure but complex on the palate, this is a full-bodied and well-structured Grande Anne with a long, intense yet dry, salty, beautifully clear and cleansing finish with lingering citrus flavors and a persistent mineral structure. This 2007 is still young, but its elegance, finesse, freshness and promising complexity are fabulous. Drink now and over the next 12 to 15+ years.

95/100 Richard Juhlin

It might seem a bit surprising that Bollinger skipped the great vintage of 2006 for the more modest 2007. For me that choice is however quite logical since the Bollinger house style is much better suited to austere vintages than for fruit bombs. Here we have a classic and perfectly balanced Bollinger with deep layers and beautiful crisp apple acidity. Gorgeous balance between the dark and light as a perfect Ying and Yang marriage. Layers of dry cocoa, hazelnut fudge, dried apricots and juicy red apples dominate over a beautiful hint of forest aromas based on sous bois and mushrooms in the background. One of the three best champagnes from this vintage.

93/100 Antonio Galloni

Bollinger's 2007 Brut La Grande Année is quite pretty. Elegant, restrained and understated in style, the 2007 is one of the more delicate young Grande Années I can remember tasting. Mid-weight structure and silky texture only reinforce that impression. Lemon oil, red berry, dried flowers and chamomile open up nicely, but it is the wine's overall feel that stands out most. Best of all, the 2007 will drink well with no cellaring.
