Wine Spectator 95 points - A complex Champagne, with flavors that range from flowers and orange citrus to vanilla, roasted hazelnut, leather and woodsy spices. This is intense, but shows finesse, with a fine, spicy aftertaste. Drink now through 2030. --B.S. (Dec 15 2009)

The Bollinger Grande Année remains, however, a blended wine from crus and grape varieties. In this sense it too carries the expression of the House style. However, in this case, the style is also dependent on the characteristics of the given vintage. It is the best wine Bollinger can produce in an individual year by exposing its particular character.
