Bollinger have bucked the trend of releasing a 2006 Grand Année, selecting instead to release this fabulous 2007. Chiming well with this vintage's restraint - Bollinger have created a beautiful vintage champagne. Well-cut acidity and a fine texture leaving you gasping for more of this delightful, just intense enough, just broad enough juice. Loaded with bright fruit notes and more herbaceous foresty notes. A great champagne for drinking now and over the next five years. L&S (Nov 2017)

This has a very attractive, grapefruit and lemon edge to the nose with toasty and ripe, expressive, fruit notes that follow through to the smooth palate with an attractive, toasty build at the finish. Disgorged in November 2017. Drink now or hold. Rating: 93 James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com(Aug 2018)
This bright and lacy Champagne offers a tapestry of finely woven flavors, with notes of graphite, ground spice, crushed blackberry, dried apricot, toast and honeycomb. Firm and focused, with a lasting, chalky finish. Drinking range: 2017 - 2027 Rating: 94 Alison Napjus, The Wine Spectator(Oct 2017)
70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay from 14 crus: mainly Aÿ and Verzenay for the Pinot Noir, Cramant and Oger for the Chardonnay. 91% grands crus and 9% premiers crus. Made using only the cuvée juice and fermented entirely in older barrels. Under cork during lees ageing. Disgorged June 2016. Dosage 7 g/l. From bottle. To the surprise of all the tasters round the table, the bottle of the 2007 seemed fresher and more youthful than the magnum. It was less open, tighter, with more obvious citrus character and pear fruit, even seems to taste drier but that is probably just because the whole thing seems fresher. Not as broad as the wine from magnum but more persistent, and, as far as this bottle is concerned, better ageing potential. Drinking range: 2018 - 2028 Rating: 17.5 Julia Harding MW, www.JancisRobinson.com(Jun 2017)
Jacques Bollinger, who was born at Ellwanger in the Kingdom of Wurtemberg, came to Champagne in 1822. In 1829, together with Hennequin de Villermont and Paul Levieux Renaudin, he founded the Champagne House of Bollinger Renaudin at Ay. The Bollinger family have managed the House ever since. Despite Paul Renaudin dying without issue, his name remained on the label until the 1960's. Pehaps the most famous member of the Bollinger family was "Lilly" Bollinger who married Jacques' great grandson and took over the Company when he died in 1941. She is responsible for the famous quote "I drink it when I’m happy and when I’m sad. Sometimes I drink it when I’m alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I’m not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise, I never touch it—unless I’m thirsty" Except in the very best vintages, only the first pressings are used (the rest being sold off) and Bollinger still carry out first fermentations in oak. Bollinger own around 160ha of vineyard which account for about 60% of their requirements. They are planted to about 60% Pinot Noir.
