Another rare bubbly for you. Though not in gift box, this is a great gift as it is a 20 yrs old Champagne from a great vintage - 2002. We are probably the only merchant in SG who has this wine now....extremely limited. Don't miss out this highly rated Bolly:

'There is Champagne, and then there is 2002 Bollinger. This wine makes me dizzy, stammering in cross-eyed bliss. Taking a step back, the sustained chord of flavor comes into focus, revealing a limestone honey: scents of acacia, marzipan, apricot and golden citrus. Jamal Rayyis, one of our tasters with the broadest flavor library in his head, described the scent as loomi (dried lime) and dried apricot, as if walking into a Middle Eastern market. Flavor details aside, the wine’s richness softens the structural grandeur of the vintage, which is buoyed in a mineral bath of power. This will reward another ten or 20 years of age, and the bottles that remain will likely only feed the wine’s legend.' Wine & Spirits

'60% Pinot Noir, selected from grand crus on the north and south side of the Montagne de Reims, blended with 40% Chardonnay from Cuis and elsewhere on the Côte des Blancs. After fermentation in cask and ageing under cork, the wine was disgorged with a dosage of roughly 8g/L. Today it is opening up, with notes of ripe apple, brioche, and a touch of caramel. The texture is velvety and lush, and the wine seems hedonistically ready to drink, although it should continue to hold for some time to come. (CC)' Decanter 96 pts (4/2021)

'The 2002 Brut La Grande Année is marvelous. The 2002 is an understated Grande Année that caresses the palate with layers of effortless, weightless fruit. The mousse is exceptionally fine, which adds to the impression of total elegance. This is a relatively bright, floral Grande Annee with plenty of aromatic lift, inner perfume and no sense of heaviness at all. A rich, creamy finish adds the final note of complexity and pedigree. The 2002 is 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay, 71% from Grand Cru villages and 29% from Premier Crus. Disgorged February 2011. (AG)' The Wine Advocate 94 pts
