Blend of 72% Pinot Noir and 28% Chardonnay.
Lily Bollinger agreed to a Bollinger rosé under one condition, it had to be extraordinary, and that is how La Grande Année Rosé was born: the unique blend between a great vintage champagne and a red wine from a unique plot, the legendary Côte aux Enfants. The 2007 is a blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, from a total of 14 crus.
Redcurrant and dried fig aromas accompanied by a minty touch: notes of blond tobacco and dried flowers. A wine with fine, delicate flavors; notes of mirabelle plum, kirsch and freshly cut grass; a beautiful aromatic structure.
Bollinger’s 2007 La Grande Année Rosé Brut is a rich and powerful yet fresh and tightly woven Champagne that gets its characteristic coral color from the addition of 6% red Côte aux Enfants Pinot Noir from Aÿ. Fermented entirely in barrels and aged under natural cork, the 2007 offers a chalky-pure and matured bouquet of redcurrants, green figs, dark chocolate, minty and dried floral expressions. Very fresh and elegant on the palate, this is a full-bodied, dense, complex and structured rosé with a long, intense and well-structured finish that reveals the youthful soul of this fresh and chalky 2007. This is a long-distance runner and surely a wine to have with poultry dishes such as duck or pigeon. It will strongly benefit from further bottle aging. Wine Advocate – 96
