Bollinger is one of our favourite Champagne houses. Don't miss out this exceptional 2012 vintage. Fresh with exceptional texture and structure. Dense, silky with a long and refined finish. If you wish, it's approachable now but ideally drink from 2025 to 2030.

Fun facts: Did you know that Bollinger Grande Annee is vinified in barrels and they are actually the same wines that becomes RD (recently disgorged). Basically RD are later release of Grand Annee!

Cepage: 65% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay.

21 crus: Mainly Aÿ and Verzenay for the Pinot Noir, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger and Oiry for the Chardonnay.
Fermented entirely in barrels. 
At Bollinger, only very high quality harvests become a vintage: the exceptional 2012 vintage led to Bollinger creating expressive wines that were simultaneously full, fresh and complex.
Maturation: Sealed with a natural cork and cellar aged for more than twice the time required by the appellation.
Dosage:  Moderate at 8 g/l
