The delicate colour and golden hues are a sign of the wine's maturity and Bollinger's wine-making methods. The nose is full and expressive. Apricot, almond and hazelnut, followed by notes of honey and cereals intertwining in a symphony of aromas. On the palate there is exceptional texture and structure. Dense, silky with a long finish. Fresh and full with a delicious refined finish. Pair with scallops with sorrel and vanilla, grilled oyster, smoked butter and sea purslane, hen of the woods mushroom, potato emulsion and truffle.

The 2012 Grande Année is vibrant and wonderfully nuanced. Citrus peel, orchard fruit, brioche, dried flowers and chamomile are all finely knit in a Grand Année built on energy and persistence more than size. Readers will find a restrained Grand Année in 2012. There is plenty of the textural richness that is such a signature of the house style, but I am also struck by the wine's freshness. Best of all, the 2012 will drink well right out of the gate. It is quite expressive today, even in the early going.
