2007 Grande Année, Champagne Bollinger

2007 Grande Année, Champagne Bollinger

Ref: BOLL070
White  |  Sparkling  |  12.5% ABV

The champagne house of Bollinger was founded in 1829, originally called Renaudin Bollinger. The founders were Hennequin de Villermont (whose family had been making wine in the region since the 18th century), Paul Levieux Renaudin and Jacques Bollinger, and immigrant from Germany. Baollinger gained a royal warrant from Queen Victoria in 1884. And the family were continually looking to expand, buying vineyards and other champagne houses. When Jacques Bollinger died in 1948 his widow Lily took the reins. She became one of the region's most celebrated figures and is remembered for her quote about the wine of Champagne: "I drink it when I’m happy and when I’m sad. Sometimes I drink it when I’m alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I’m not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise, I never touch it—unless I’m thirsty." Bollinger still employs wooden barrels for the fermentation of its wines.

Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes

"Highly elegant, fine and pure but complex on the palate, this is a full-bodied and well-structured Grande Année with a long, intense yet dry, salty, beautifully clear and cleansing finish with lingering citrus flavors and a persistent mineral structure. This 2007 is still young, but its elegance, finesse, freshness and promising complexity are fabulous. Drink now and over the next 12 to 15+ years." Stephan Reinhardt

Sweetness Explained
Sweetness Explained

Sweetness

All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab. 

Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
