TN: 1992 Bollinger Champagne La Grande Année (France, Champagne)

  • 1992 Bollinger Champagne La Grande Année - France, Champagne (3/7/2018)
    Opens with a relaxed sigh and still has a gentle prickle of bubbles against the gums. The nose is complex with notes of baked apple, preserved ginger, lime brulee, honey and toast. It is full in the mouth, with honeyed flavours and plenty of nuttiness. The finish is punctuated by an almost oyster-like salinity. An engaging, mature Champagne, that served us well over several courses at fermentAsian.

This wine changed my outlook on Champagne forever over a decade ago.

Sounds about right, we had the 97 Grand Annee on Saturday night and it was the best champers I’ve had in a long, long while. Blew away a 1990 Deutz.
