Bollinger uses a high proportion of its own grapes to its blends, 85% of which are from Grand Cru or Premier Cru vineyards. Pinot Noir is the predominant variety, but this is cleverly teamed with Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier to produce their famous and opulent Champagne style.
Bollinger’s vintage, known as Grande Annee, is made from 70% Pinot Noir from Ay & Verzenay and Chardonnay grapes from Avize, Chouilly & Le Mesnil. Complex aromas of honey, hazelnuts and rich fruits, fresh and confit, the mouthfeel is supple, full and long.
