Bollinger’s prestige champagne is produced only when the harvest reaches a perfect balance: it is Bollinger’s version of an exceptional vintage.
At Bollinger, only very high quality harvests become vintage.
2004 was quite a delicate year in Champagne, with a relatively dry winter and spring but a cold, wet end to the summer. The grapes were picked during a fine Indian summer which meant they were in an excellent state of health. All the conditions were favourable to give their grapes the special qualities necessary for the very best vintages.
