Bollinger La Grande Année 2005

Layout 1The 2005 vintage of Bollinger La Grande Année was launched in London last month by the Champagne house’s president, Jérôme Philipon, who described the UK as Bollinger’s “largest and most important market in the world.” Philipon revealed that Bollinger had decided to release its 75cl bottles, magnums and Jeroboams of 2005 at the same time as they are all ready to drink. Nearly all of the grapes (95%) that went into the fizz came from Bollinger’s own vineayrds, with Philipon describing the brut as “the purest expression of Pinot Noir you’ll find in a Champagne”. Meanwhile, cellar master Gilles Descôtes described the 2005 vintage as “ripe” though said that the wine’s relatively low acidity would in no way impede its ageing potential. La Grande Année Brut 2005 is formed of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay from grand and premier crus vineyards in Aÿ, Verzenay, Avize, Chouilly and Mesnil-sur-Oger.
