The piece announces that the Pinot Noir-dominant (71%) prestige cuvée is nationally available in the U.S. through VINTUS. In addition explaining that this wine is aged on the lees for more than nine years, resulting in an exceptional array of flavors, it highlights that the 2008 vintage introduces “new packaging for Bollinger’s vintage bubblies, including a narrower-necked bottle and wooden gift box.” Please read more HERE
La Grande Année: The Great Year. This Champagne is the embodiment of everything that makes Bollinger the producer that stands apart in Champagne. La Grande Année, or LGA, preserves the traditions of the past and symbolizes the word "hand-crafted" so strongly that an overused word suddenly becomes the only appropriate definition.
Bollinger is one of the rare Grande Marques that’s still family owned. Known for its rich, elegant and polished style of Champagne, their outstanding wines are the result of rigorous attention to detail and incredibly labor-intensive practices that few houses are willing to undertake. Underscoring its excellence, Bollinger has remained British secret agent James Bond's Champagne of choice since 1973.
