  • 97pts, Wine Spectator, 2020

Handcrafted every step of the way, this Pinot Noir rich cuvée comes from the best vineyards. It is oak fermented for extra complexity, and the bottles are riddled (turned) daily by hand. Breathtakingly delicious, top of the range vintage Champagne.

Established in Ay in 1829, Bollinger is without doubt one of the top names in Champagne. It remains a family company and is run by a great grandson of founder Ghislain de Montgolfier. Winemaker is Gilles Descôtes, known for his muscular style of Champagnes. 71% of the grapes come from Grand Cru vineyards and the rest from Premier Cru. Crucially, the wine is barrel fermented, an expensive process adding considerably to the depth and complexity of flavour. Not only are bottles turned by hand, they are disgorged (the removal of yeast sediment) manually as well. Thus La Grande Année is as much a work of art as a tribute to winemaking science. Creamy, concentrated and complex, this Champagne is ready now, but will also cellar well.
