2002 Bollinger available online

January and February have been very Burgundy focused, but it’s time to move onto something a bit different – although not away from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir altogether. 

We now have the newest vintage of Bollinger Grande Année available for sale online. The 2002 vintage in Champagne has been widely heralded as excellent and this example ably demonstrates the vintage’s intensity and longevity: 

2002 Grande Année, Champagne Bollinger
£280/6 bottles in bond
“…extremely promising combination of the completeness and potential of the 2002 champagne vintage and Bollinger’s distinctive mushroomy perfume, full Pinot-dominated palate and dry finish.  This should make great old bones and, thanks to 2002’s power, is already much more approachable than many previous young vintage Bollingers…Complex, satisfying and extremely promising.” Jancis Robinson, 19 points

We also have 2002 Bollinger Rosé available for those looking for something for more immediate enjoyment:

2002 Grande Année Rosé, Champagne Bollinger
£396.00/6 bottles in bond
Natural, pale, salmon pink in colour, this has an enticing perfume that hints at fresh summer fruits and white flowers. Refined and distinguished, with wild-strawberry and redcurrant on the palate balanced by Bollinger’s trademark toasted brioche character. There is a minerality on the long finish that suggests that this wine could have a long future, but it is also absolutely delicious now.
