Bollinger - La Grande Annee 2005Magnum
To the eye: The delicate colour and golden hues are a sign of the wine’s maturity and Bollinger’s wine-making methods.
To the nose: A first impression of fresh almonds, then yellow-flesh fruit aromas evoking peach and mango; toasted, roasted notes accompanied with dried citrus and pink grapefruit.
On the palate: A lovely aromatic fullness with honey flavours and a smooth chalky texture; candied lemon notes and a delicious bitterness, a wonderfully refreshing finish.
After bottling, cellar aging take place under a natural cork to protect from oxidation and to preserve the freshness of the wines, the bouquet and the clarity of aromas.
Ageing on lees for 9 years.
