Bollinger Champagne ‘Grande Annee’ 2007

Sparkling Wine from France - Champagne
Review Date : 07-Jul-2017
Darker straw-yellow colour with some light golden, moderate persistence and fine bead. This bouquet is rich with yellow stonefruits packed harmoniously with bready-yeasty autolysis. Great concentration and density of fruit and autolysis, and less aldehyde and no trace of oxidative nuance. Quite complete on the bouquet, unfolding greater depth and intensity with aeration. Dry, but great fruit richness and density, matched by integrated autolysis. This has a firm core and great linearity, but the volume, structural textures and softness make this a wine that has no deficiencies. The yellow stonefruit of Pinot Noir, and autolysis yields a touch of toastiness too. This is as full and together as a wine can be, but underlying it all is finesse. A beautifully fresh marvel of Champagne engineering! A blend of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay from 14 crus, 91% grand crus and 9% premier cru, 7 g/L dosage. Disgorged November 2016. 19.0+/20 Jul 2017 RRP $235.00
