Bollinger La Grande Année Brut Champagne Blend 2002

Delectable this is not the Rose. It is the Brut. Mid lemon in colour. Bakery yeasty aromas with Lemon citrus. A super fine continuous bead. Amazing that the blend is 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay - the flavour profile being more like a Blanc de Blancs. With time a note of grilled pineapple. Great flavour intensity and energy with still good cellaring potential from the excellent 2002 vintage.

2002 vintage. Just awesome!!! Buttered honeyed warm bread on the nose. Creamy and elegant on the palate. It's heaven in a glass!

Light straw yellow color. Nice constant small bubbles. Stony lemon zest nose. Young and vibrant in the mouth. Still a baby.
