The Story

The latest gift from Madame Bollinger, La Grande Année Rosé has been the expression of unique know-how from its origin. It is an extension of La Grande Année, through the addition of a very emblematic red wine coming from a unique plot of land in the Champagne region: The mythical “La Côte aux Enfants,” a vineyard of less than 1.5 acres, specifically dedicated to the making of La Grande Année Rosé. This wine is not produced every year, as perfect maturity is required at the date of harvest. Thus, La Grande Année Rosé remains an exception; it is a beautifully structured and full-bodied wine, with a deep color and intense aroma.

Vintage 2004

2004 Blend /68% Pinot Noir, 32% Chardonnay
89% Grands crus, 11% Premiers Crus
5% red Côte aux Enfants wine
At Bollinger, only very high quality harvests become vintage: vintage 2004 gives us beautifully wine-like champagne, with pleasant hints of a great Pinot Noir

Maturation
Cellar aged for more than twice the time required by the Appellation

"La Grande Année Rosé 2004 enhances and complements perfectly the subtlest gourmet experiences. This powerful and complex champagne is perfect for a romantic dinner, adding a touch of infinite seduction.
To fully appreciate its unique style, bouquet and aromas, La Grande Année Rosé 2004 is best served between 10 and 12°c.
You can enjoy La Grande Année Rosé 2004 right away, or choose to age it in your cellar… for more than 10 years."
Mathieu Kauffmann, Cellar Master

Madame Bollinger agreed to a Bollinger rosé under one condition, it had to be extraordinary, and that is how La Grande Année Rosé was born: The unique blend between a great vintage champagne and a red wine from a unique plot, the legendary Côte aux Enfants. To produce a red wine of such high quality in the champagne region is a challenge: a rare treat, a true Bollinger.

Written Notes

Far from the afterthought one might have feared after the line-up above, this had a gorgeous, complex nose of red berries, brioche, orange, a little smoke and anise. It has lively, vibrant but not distracting effervescence, which serves to delineate the otherwise drier, yeast-filled notes of this Champagne. Red berries assert themselves past the mid palate, and this has a softness, matched with hints of ginger and floral accents, with a nice lift towards the lovely multi-faceted finish. 96 Points+

Bollinger Grand Année Rosé 2004 Very fruity nose with lots of red apples, citrus, blood orange, lemon, red berries, spices and curry. Hints of stone fruits as well as autolytic notes. Full and round with a touch obvious dosage up front with red apples, peaches and red berries. Tightens up on the finish with a very lively refreshing acidity and note of red currant, nuts and mineral. 2014-2020 92p.
