La Grande Année
Bollinger fremstiller kun Champagne La Grande Année (LGA) i de helt exceptionelle år. Vinens første gæring foregår på egetræsfade og den efterfølgende flaskelagring foregår på flaske med korkprop. Den store andel Pinot Noir giver vinen kolossal kraft og fylde, og druernes fornemme oprindelse forklarer den fantastiske kompleksitet og det superbe lagringspotentiale. Vinifikationen foregår udelukkende på små egetræsfade, som i gennemsnit er 20 år gamle. Bollinger råder i alt over 3.500 egetræsfade. Alt arbejde med at lave vinen foregår ved håndkraft, fra vinhøsten til Champagnen kommer på flaske: Hver flaske er således blevet håndteret mindst 40 gange når den kommer på flaske. Ingen detalje overlades til tilfældigheder. Druerne kommer udelukkende fra Grand Cru og 1. Cru vinmarker. Pinot Noir druerne kommer primært fra Aÿ og Verzenay Montagne de Reims og Chardonnay-druerne fra Le Mesnil-sur-Oger og Oiry i Côte des Blancs. La Grande Année er prestigechampagnen, som altid bliver rost til skyerne og som i hver årgang, får topanmeldelser af både internationale og danske vinanmeldere og i topårgangen 2012 er forventningerne tårnhøje og man bliver ikke skuffet! Vinen har en indtagende bouquet af hvide blomster, citrusfrugt og krydderier, smagen er afgrundsdyb kompleks, med en let cremet struktur og slutter meget flot kalket og mineralsk af med et snert af salt, eftersmagen varer flere minutter! La Grande Année 2012 har et meget stort lagringspotentiale.

Tyson Stelzer - The Champagne Guide
The bombastic complexity that defines Bollinger rises to a grand and flamboyant crescendo in the mighty 2012 season. True to the vintage, it presents a medium straw hue, deeper in colour, tone and mood than the dynamic 2008 before it. The pure red and black cherries of ripe pinot noir from the grand slopes of Aÿ are masterfully toned by the perfume and energy of the north-east-facing hillside of Verzenay, backed by the citrus zest of Le Mesnil and Oiry chardonnay. It's simultaneously ripe, juicy, zesty and tense, with fruit presence of tantalising beauty seamlessly fused with fine chalk minerality and an acid line of sensational drive, yet at every moment perfectly ripe and effortlessly integrated. Fruit rightly takes a confident lead here, with the fig, spice, honey and roast almond of barrel fermentation and bottle age welling up in a rising background chorus. The modern era of Bollinger's attentiveness in the vineyards and cellar characterises a style ever more pure and seamless. This does nothing to diminish the multifaceted layers of signature complexity of Bollinger. Indeed, it somehow manages to pull off the feat of achieving precisely the opposite, magnifying and focusing its myriad details with greater clarity than ever. This serves to present the mood of the season with more articulate typicity than ever, while celebrating all of the rumbling depth and power that we love of Bollinger. While it won't live as long as the enduring 2008 (no house will) it achieves equal heights of fantastic line and incredible length. The result is consummately 2012, emphatically Bollinger and gloriously, irresistibly delicious.

his goes from zero to 60 right out of the gate, with an intense spine of acidity driving tightly meshed flavors of crushed black currant, ground coffee, candied grapefruit peel and toasted almond. The profile expands on the palate, carried by the fine, raw silk–like mousse. Richly aromatic and expressive from start to lasting, spiced finish. Disgorged July 2019. Drink now through 2037. 850 cases imported.—A.N.
I love the magical moment when I get the chance, as the first journalist, to lighten the cork of the latest vintage of Bollinger La Grande Année......The wine is made from 21 villages with Aÿ and Verzenay in the driver's seat backed by elegance from Le Mesnil-sur-Oger and Oiry. The wine is characterized by vitality and energy more than depth at present. The color has a brilliant golden glow and the mousse is almost panting in its resilient youthfulness. The scent is beautifully house typical, dominated by apricot, almond, hazelnut and a smoky sophisticated intensity as from a newly lit outdoor fire. The attack is stunningly intense and the weight in the oral cavity leaves nothing left to wish for. Resilient energy and fullness are combined with greatness. Anyone who has patience will be rewarded with truffled flavor layers, chocolate saturated complexity and added exoticism of honeysuckle in the wine's bouquet.
ganske flot næse med udmærket dybde. Let toast og nøddeagtigt træ. Let jord i eftersmagen, hvilket er typisk for Bollinger, og let sødme/dosage.
The 2012 Grande Année is vibrant and wonderfully nuanced. Citrus peel, orchard fruit, brioche, dried flowers and chamomile are all finely knit in a Grand Année built on energy and persistence more than size. Readers will find a restrained Grand Année in 2012. There is plenty of the textural richness that is such a signature of the house style, but I am also struck by the wine's freshness. Best of all, the 2012 will drink well right out of the gate. It is quite expressive today, even in the early going.

A markedly restrained and decidedly cool yet strikingly elegant
nose combines notes of spiced apple, pear, white flowers, citrus rind and a background suggestion of brioche. The wonderfully
vibrant and intense flavors are supported by a notably fine effervescence that perhaps isn’t quite as firm as one might think for
such a young wine. This classy and ultra-refined effort should drink well earlier than usual though I underscore that it definitely
is not at its peak. With that said, it could easily be enjoyed now for its youthful exuberance. Lovely. 93/2024+
While the 2012 La Grande Annee doesn't match the magical 2008, it's not far off and has a similar purity and elegance. Beautiful notes of white flowers, white grapefruit, salty minerality, sliced apple, and hazelnut nuances all emerge on the nose, and this beauty hits the palate with medium-bodied richness, plenty of mid-palate concentration, bright yet integrated acidity, and a beautiful finish. This gains depth and richness with time in the glass but really needs 2-4 years of bottle age and should easily evolve for 20+ years in cold cellars.
Disgorged in July 2019, Bollinger's 2012 Brut La Grande Année is showing well, offering up an incipiently complex bouquet of crisp yellow orchard fruit, fresh peach, orange oil, toasted walnuts and dried apricot that's still quite reserved with less than a year on cork. Full-bodied, deep and muscular, the 2012 is blockier and broader-shouldered than its 2008 predecessor, with a weightier and even more concentrated palate built around a bright spine of acidity, concluding with a chalky finish that carries appreciably dry extract. This isn't quite as elegant as the exquisite 2008, but it is a superb effort and obviously built to age. 2024 - 2050.
