The Story

Bollinger has always been considered the ‘man’s’ Champagne due to its history with the James Bond films and its full-bodied, stronger, oaked flavour. We always find, preferential red wine drinkers will favour Bollinger out of a line up and for this reason we use it as a starting point for their Champagne journey. Behind the house is an exceptional quality control process which means you will be hard-pressed to find a bad bottle. The formidable vintages lines of La Grande Annee and RD are highly prized, 100% fermented in barrels, with a price tag to match.

M+Q Notes

A powerful, structured and graceful 2005, showing deft integration of the rich, chalky underpinning, firm acidity and expansive flavors of crushed black currant, spring blossom, toasted almond, crystallized honey and preserved lemon. Offers a fine, raw silk-like mousse and a long, spiced finish. Disgorged February 2015. Drink now through 2030.
