2009 Bollinger Grande Année/ James Bond
70% Pinot Noir
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
Best enjoyed on its own as a digestif or dessert, however also fantastic with dishes such as these: steamed fish fillets with scallion-ginger oil, grilled asparagus with saffron aioli.
Big and powerful, this Champagne emits a pine aroma initially, exhibiting fine concentration and complexity. Rich, with some honey, nut and toast flavours, it has enough acidity to keep it lively and fresh. Typically 'Bollinger' style of concentrated, complex layers and a soft finish.
