Bollinger's prestigious cuvée, la Grande Année is only made when the vintage is outstandingly good.
It captures the essence of that particular vintage and together with Bollinger's majestic style, aromas so intense, rich and complex are revealed and vary from vintage to vintage.
16 Grand (75%) and 1st growths (25%) compose the 1999 Grande Année, blend of Pinot Noir (65%) and of Chardonnay (35%).
As in other great years gone by, this champagne is round, strong, vigorous and bubbly.
Aromatically complex, it gains in depth when properly ventilated.
The texture is ample and the balance close to perfection.
