La Grande Année 2012

Textured and expressive

Bollinger’s prestige champagne is produced only when the harvest reaches a perfect balance.


Vinified exclusively in barrels.

Riddled and disgorged by hand.

Blend of the 2012 vintage 

65% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay.  21 crus:  mainly Aÿ and Verzenay for the Pinot Noir, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger and Oiry for the Chardonnay.
Exclusive use of the cuvee.  

Fermented entirely in barrels.
At Bollinger, only very high quality harvests become a vintage: the exceptional 2012 vintage led to Bollinger creating expressive wines that were simultaneously full, fresh and complex.

Maturation 
Sealed with a natural cork and cellar aged for more than twice the time required by the appellation.

Dosage 
Moderate, 8 grams per liter.

To the eye  

The delicate colour and golden hues are a sign of the wine’s maturity and Bollinger’s wine-making methods.


To the nose 
Full and expressive. Apricot, almond and hazelnut, followed by notes of honey and cereals intertwining in a symphony of aromas.

On the palate 
Exceptional texture and structure. 
Dense, silky with a long finish. Fresh and full with a delicious refined finish.

Scallops with sorrel and vanilla.

Grilled oyster, smoked butter and sea purslane.

Hen of the woods mushroom, potato emulsion and truffle.

La Grande Année 2012 is the perfect champagne for gourmet food. 

To fully appreciate its unique style and aromas, La Grande Année 2012 is best served between 8 and 10°C. 

You can enjoy La Grande Année 2012 now or choose to age it in your cellar.

La Grande Année is the embodiment of the carefully preserved traditional expertise of the Bollinger Champagne House. The wine is therefore exclusively vinified in small aged oak barrels. Champagne Bollinger has never abandoned this traditional craft method, which helps develop aromas of great finesse. After a prolonged ageing on its lees, even today every bottle of La Grande Année is riddled and disgorged by hand.

La Grande Année 2008

Depth and Refinement

Bollinger’s prestige champagne is produced only when the harvest reaches a perfect balance.

Blend of the 2008 vintage 

71% Pinot Noir, 29% Chardonnay.  18 crus:  mainly Aÿ and Verzenay for the Pinot Noir, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger and Cramant for the Chardonnay.
Exclusive use of the cuvee.  

Fermented entirely in barrels.
At Bollinger, only very high quality harvests become a vintage: in 2008, the remarkable maturity of the grapes combined with a phenomenal acidity have produced a wine of infinite depth and allowed an exceptional vintage to be created.

Maturation 
Sealed with a natural cork and cellar aged for more than twice the time required by the appellation.

Dosage 
Moderate, 8 grams per liter.

To the eye  

The delicate colour and golden hues are a sign of the wine’s maturity and Bollinger’s wine-making methods.


To the nose 
A wonderful aromatic depth. The wine’s fruity, spicy and floral notes intertwine to reveal a highly complex nose; wild peach, plum and orange peel precede saffron and tonka bean, complemented by a fresh, mineral aspect.

On the palate 
Dense and harmonious in the mouth. A creamy effervescence and fresh structure, with a gentle saline finish.

Cured ham.

Seared scallops or scallops tartare. Grilled lobster.

Chicken in a light creamy sauce.
