Market Watch has touted Champagne Bollinger in its June 2019 issue. In a section about wine releases and industry news, the publication has highlighted the release of La Grande Année 2008. The write up elaborates bynoting this vintage has new packaging and that the prestige cuvée “is aged on the lees for more than 9 years, and is made of 71% Pinot Noir and 29% Chardonnay, sourced 84% from grand crus and 16% from premier crus.”
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.
