Tasting notes for the Champagne Bollinger Brut "La Grande Année" 2014
- EYE: The wine displays a beautiful bright gold color with copper reflections.
- NOSE: The nose is initially highly expressive, offering notes of yellow fruits such as mirabelle plum, peach, and apricot, followed by floral nuances and toasted and spicy notes of roasted hazelnuts and cinnamon. With aeration, hints of toasted bread and honey also emerge.
- MOUTH: On the palate, the wine has a lively and fresh attack, with a beautiful mineral character and notes of white-fleshed fruits, citrus zest, and nuts. The bubbles are fine and elegant, and the texture is ample and silky. The roasted and spicy aromas develop over time, adding complexity and leading to a long, mouthwatering finish.
In short: This Champagne Brut "La Grande Année" 2014 comes from the iconic Maison Bollinger. It is an elegant and powerful champagne that truly reflects the terroir and expertise of the Bollinger house. It can be enjoyed now but also has the potential to age gracefully for several years in the cellar. When you serve it, keep it nice and chilled (between 8 and 10° C).
