Characteristics of Bollinger La Grande Année
One of the finest and most amazing champagnes.
It is produced by Bollinger only in exceptional vintages. It is made of grapes from the Grands Crus and Premiers Crus (a total of 17 crus). It is elaborated with the "cuvée" (the best juice from the press), whose first fermentation takes place in 5-year small oak barrels of no more than 400 l, allowing the increase of the aromatic complexity and the ageing potential. This is a complete exception in the production of Champagne and has become the emblem of Bollinger Champagne. The second fermentation and ageing is conducted with a cork (another difference) to ensure freshness. This procedure is conducted in underground cellars for a minimum of 5-6 years. After disgorging, the champagne is left to stay for three additional months.
