2012 Bollinger Brut La Grande Annee
Cépage: Chardonnay; Pinot Noir
Size: 750 ml
Rating(s): 95 (RP); 96 (JD)
" Beautiful notes of white flowers, white grapefruit, salty minerality, sliced apple, and hazelnut nuances all emerge on the nose, and this beauty hits the palate with medium-bodied richness, plenty of mid-palate concentration, bright yet integrated acidity, and a beautiful finish. This gains depth and richness with time in the glass but really needs 2-4 years of bottle age and should easily evolve for 20+ years in cold cellars."
