Bollinger Grand Année 2012

Champagne Bollinger launched its 2012 vintage fizz, La Grande Année, as well as a rosé expression, at St. John Restaurant in London, which saw the “gastronomic” sparklers paired with Dorset langoustines and a guinea fowl pie. This was the first stop on “Le Grand Tour”, which will see chefs from around the world create dishes that champion a single ingredient to pair with the two wines. A blend of 65% Pinot Noir and 35% Chardonnay, sourced from 21 crus, the blanc has a dosage of 8g/l and notes of “apricot, almond, cereal and hazelnut”, according to the producer.

RRP: £115.
