Bollinger La Grande Année 2007
To the eye: The delicate colour and golden hues are a sign of the wine's maturity and Bollinger's wine-making methods. To the nose: A first impression of fresh almonds, then yellow-flesh fruit aromas evoking peach and mango; toasted, roasted notes accompanied with dried citrus and pink grapefruit. On the palate: A lovely aromatic fullness with honey flavours and a smooth chalky texture; candied lemon notes and a delicious bitterness, a wonderfully refreshing finish. Food pairings: Foie gras, fresh or pan-fried. Grilled fish, with or without sauce, lobster. Roast lamb or veal. Parmesan or Comté.
