Bollinger 'Grande Annee', the name, signifies that Bollinger's vintage champagne is only released during 'great' years.

The Grande Annee blend comes only from a particularly fine harvest. When such a harvest occurs the House selects its best wines, cru by cru and grape variety by grape variety - the key to the particular year. Each wine is individually fermented in oak casks prior to blending. On average, the blend is composed of 65% pinot noir and 35% chardonnay.

The "Grande Annee" always ages for a minimum of five years in its bottle, magnum or jeroboam corked with a traditional cork.

Champagne Bollinger PDG, Ghislain de Montgolfier says, Grand Annee 1997 is a superb win. We could describe it as a blend of the monster '96 and the rich '89'.
