Overview

This is Madame Bollinger’s ultimate gift, the result of rare conditions: a blend between a great champagne and one of the very best red wines of the Champagne region, both from the same vintage. Madame Bollinger agreed to a Bollinger rosé under one condition, it had to be extraordinary, and that is how La Grande Année Rosé was born: the unique blend between a great vintage champagne and a red wine from a unique plot, the legendary Côte aux Enfants. To produce a red wine of such high quality in the champagne region is a challenge: a rare treat, a true Bollinger

Expert Reviews

“I love when Bollinger let the Pinot Noir be so heavily dominant. Also here, we are dealing with a great vintage for the traditional boutique house in Ay. The scent is perhaps a bit more closed than it is in the white twin, but on the other hand, seasoned with new seductive elements reminiscent of Marie Antoinette. A puff box note and dried rose petals romanticize risqué over the classic nutty depth. The length and the structural grandeur is extremely impressive.”- 93.5 points Richard Juhlin, ChampagneClub.com, Mar 2015

“This is a thrilling wine with a beautiful nose, marked by extremely sensual and forward wild red berry notes. The nose leads with bright, pristine, strawberry notes and a buoyant palate follows hot on its heels. The texture is very smooth, silky and ethereal.” Matthew Jukes, matthewjukes.com, April 2015
