La Grande Année Rosé is an alternative expression of La Grande Année, transformed by the addition, at blending, of the unique red wine from La Côte aux Enfants. The emblematic single plot of the House, located in Aÿ, produces still red wine only when the grapes reach perfect ripeness. After vinification in small aged oak barrels and a prolonged ageing on its lees, even today every bottle of La Grande Année is riddled and disgorged by hand. This reflects all the expertise of the House, able to create a cuvée whose quality is matched only by its rarity.
Blend of the 2007 vintage: 72% Pinot Noir, 28% Chardonnay.
14 crus: mainly Aÿ and Verzenay for the Pinot Noir; Cramant and Oger for the Chardonnay - 92% Grands crus and 8% Premiers crus.
6% red Côte aux Enfants wine.
Exclusive use of the cuvee. Fermented entirely in barrels.
At Bollinger, only very high quality harvests become a vintage: The year 2007 was an exceptional one, revealing a very refreshing champagne that brings out the full impact of the fruit.
Maturation: Cellar aged for more than twice the time required by the appellation. Sealed with a natural cork whilst ageing.
Dosage: Low, 7 grams per liter.
To the eye: A delicate coral tint.
To the nose: Redcurrant and dried g aromas accompanied by a minty touch: notes of blond tobacco and dried flowers.
On the palate: A wine with ne, delicate flavours; notes of mirabelle plum, kirsch and freshly cut grass; a beautiful aromatic structure.

Madame Bollinger agreed to a Bollinger rosé under one condition, it had to be extraordinary, and that is how La Grande Année Rosé was born: the unique blend between a great vintage champagne and a red wine from a unique plot, the legendary Côte aux Enfants. To produce a red wine of such high quality in the champagne region is a challenge: a rare treat, a true Bollinger.
