BOLLINGER LA GRANDE ANNEE 2014

Winery Notes:

61% Pinot Noir, 39% Chardonnay.

19 crus : Mainly Ay and Verzenay for the Pinot Noir, Chouilly and Oiry for the Chardonnay.

Exclusive use of the cuvée. Fermented entirely in aged oak barrels.

At Bollinger, only very high quality harvests become a vintage : the 2014 vintage gave rise to a wine that is simultaneously structured, rich and complex, in terms of both its minerality and exceptional intensity.

Critical Acclaim:

98 points - Antonio Galloni
"The 2014 La Grande Année is stunning. In fact, it is one of the best recent editions I can remember tasting. What comes through most is the wine's sizzling energy and tension, qualities that aren't often associated with Bollinger, where the Champagnes tend to show more breadth and volume. In 2014, readers will find a Grande Année built on linear intensity and drive.

The 2014 is a blend taken from 19 villages, 61% Pinot Noir and 39% Chardonnay instead of the more typical 70/30 mix. For the second time in two decades (the first was 2007), Verzenay takes the lead in the Pinots over Ay, more or less an inverse from the norm. Verzenay, a north-facing village in the Montagne de Reims that saw less rain than Ay and most of the Vallée de la Marne, yields Pinots of energy more than volume. That, married with Chardonnays mostly from the Cotes des Blancs (predominantly Chouilly, Vertus, Oiry and Cramant), results in a truly magical Grande Année that will delight Champagne fans for several decades. I can't recommend the 2014 highly enough. It's a total knock-out. Disgorged: April, 2021. Dosage: 8 grams per liter."

95 points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Offering up complex aromas of crisp yellow orchard fruit, confit citrus, frangipane, walnuts, dried white flowers and subtle hints of iodine, Bollinger's 2014 Brut La Grande Année is medium to full-bodied, pillowy and vinous, with an elegantly fleshy core of fruit that's underpinned by racy acids and complemented by a pretty pinpoint mousse. Concluding with a long, chalky finish, this is a charming but precise Grande Année that's more giving and demonstrative than its immediate predecessor, the 2012, but which attains a very similar level of quality in a more challenging vintage-testimony to the serious viticulture that underpins Bollinger's contemporary excellence."

94 points - Decanter
"The 2014 is very closely linked to the cold vintages, which express the characteristics of the different terroirs, the soil, and therefore the minerality,' explains Denis Bunner, assistant"
