Bollinger
Grande Année Magnum 2008

The Champagne Grande Année 2008 by Bollinger is the result of a blend of 71% Pinot Noir and 29% Chardonnay from 18 crus, mainly Ay and Verzenay for Pinot Noir and Avize, Cramant and Oger for Chardonnay (84% Grand Cru and 16% Premier Cru). The first fermentation is always carried out in oak barrels; after bottling, frothing and aging in the cellar, it is carried out with cork stoppers and this ensures better protection against oxidation; remuage and dégorgement are carried out entirely by hand (as expressly indicated on the label front).

The creamy effervescence and the very fresh texture make La Grande Année 2008 a real gastronomic champagne. Its aromatic intensity (fruity, spicy and floral), its long and salty finish make La Grande Année 2008 a beloved reference for chefs and sought after by enthusiasts from all over the world.


Winemaker

Bollinger

In 1829 Jacques Bollinger, together with Athanase de Villermont, founded in Aÿ the Maison under his name. Thanks to the priviledge position of the vineyards and a deep quality moral, the Bollinger Maison has acquired a solid reputation at international level, thanks to the style and wine quality for its Champagnes. Today the family still runs the Maison Bollinger in order to maintain a high production level. In 1992 the family wrote down its Ethic & Quality Principles, lying down all methods followed by the family to produce Champagne. The vineyards of the Maison Bollinger extend over a surface of 160 hectares within the territory of Grands Crus and Premier Crus champenoise, covering up to 70% of the grape need, witha stable quality over time. The remaining 30% comes from selected grapes from other wine-growers in the Grand and Premier Cru territories as well. The Maison Bollinger only uses wines coming from the first pressing, carefully controlling the following steps. Bollinger style is based on Pinot Noir, especially from Aÿ, Bouzy and Verzenay. The typical features of these villages grant the wines richness, vinousity and roundness. Grand Crus and Premier Crus are part of the assemblage of Grande Année and for 80% in Special Cuvée, giving Bollinger wines their structure and complexity. The vins de réserve rest in corked Magnum bottles under a light froth, cru by cru, vine by vine, year by year. This unique methos in Champagne allows the Maison Bollinger to store its wines for a long time, also keeping their original freshness and character. The Maison Bollinger owns a real winehouse and this helps in the creation of Special Cuvée, obtained after a careful selection of cru, vine and year.
