Champagne Bollinger was established in 1829 by Jacques Bollinger and to this day is still family owned. Benefitting from ownership of 163 hectares of vineyards in the finest Premier and Grand Cru sites the highest quality fruit is secure, the majority of which is Pinot Noir.
Bollinger only uses the cuvée (first press) which gives a purer and finer juice. Vinification is done by varietal and by cru delivering an impressive collection of base wines to make up the blend of Bollinger Special Cuvée and Bollinger Rosé. As well as this, a unique collection of 600,000 magnums of reserve wine are stored in the cellars in Aÿ under natural cork. These are skilfully blended by Chef de Cave Mathieu Kauffmann to make non vintage blends of distinction.
La Grande Année is produced in exceptional years interpreting the vintage in the style of Bollinger. Very old oak barrels are used to vinify the wines encouraging complexity and breadth without imparting an oak character. Extended ageing and incredibly careful handling make this one of the most sought after prestige cuvées in the market. Bollinger R.D. experiences even longer lees ageing to produce a wine of incredible complexity exposed by its recent disgorgement and very low dosage.
Each of the Bollinger cuvées is a careful assembly of the very finest ingredients by their talented, passionate team, in accordance with the House’s unique Charter of Ethics and Quality, created by Christian Bizot in 1992.
