Champagne Bollinger La Grande Année 2008 Brut
La Grande Année 2008 is from one of the most anticipated vintages since the start of the 21st century. The exceptional 2008 harvest resulted in a wine of infinite depth, concentration, and freshness. It expresses its distinctiveness in this deep, complex and harmonious wine. The clear wines were very promising: the Chardonnays were pure and straight and the Pinot Noirs rich and expressive. These two grape varieties compliment each other to give a blend with a rare balance. It has great aging potential.
84% of the fruit was sourced from Grand Cru villages and 16% from Premier Cru villages. The Pinot Noir, 71% of the blend, comes predominantly from Äy and Verzenay, and the Chardonnay, 29% of the blend, from Le Mesnil-sur-Oger and Cramant.
