A subtle blend of a rare wine and a unique plot.

- +

La Grande année Rosé 2012 is made from a blend of Pinot Noir (67%) and Chardonnay (33%). This blend comes from 21 vintages.

For pinot noir, we find mainly Aÿ and Verzenay.

For the chardonnay: Le Mesnil-sur-Oger and Oiry, finally 5% red wine from the Côte aux Enfants are added to complete this cuvée.

Only the great years are retained as the years 2002 and 2005 where the fragrances, floral in particular, were expressed with generosity.

The dress is tenderly pink.

On the nose: notes of raspberries, wild strawberries and candied fruit delicately coated in gourmet aromas such as acacia honey.

On the palate: the wine is vinous with pleasure with a delicate elegance on red berries.

Perfect as an aperitif.

The origin of the Bollinger House is Athanase de Villermont (born in Cuis in 1763 and died in Aÿ in 1840), a marine officer in the French army, who excelled during the US independence war, most notably during the Chesapeake battle on the 29th of April 1781.

A few years later, he inherited a vast family estate around the town of Aÿ, a territory well-known for the wines of Aÿ, that would later be named “Champagne”. His origins didn’t allow him to devote himself to trade, so he had the great idea to create in February of 1829 a House of Champagne wines, in the form of a company. The House is named Renaudin-Bollinger and Co: Joseph Bollinger would take care of trade while Paul Renaudin would be cellar master.

Joseph Bollinger married Louise-Charlotte in 1837, daughter to Athanase de Villermont. Joseph was born to this married couple, followed by Georges. Both faced with courage and success the Phylloxera crisis in 1875 and 1895 and the Great war. Jacques Bollinger, son of Georges, became head of the House in 1920, and married Elizabeth Law de Lauriston-Boubers in 1923, who became a widow during the second World War but kept managing the Bollinger House on her own.

The Bollinger generation carried on and in 1994, the House is managed by Joseph Bollinger’s great grandson.

While the family still owns it, the House is currently managed for the first time in its history by a stranger, Jérôme Philippon, a talented manager with a great career path.

The Bollinger House, which has been for almost two centuries constantly in search for excellence, is one of the last few houses to still have a cooper. He cares every day for 3.500 barrels, among which some are more than a 100 years old. An expertise that the House aims to sustain.
