Bollinger La Grande Année 2008
Eye: The delicate colour and golden hues are a sign of the wine's maturity and Bollinger's wine-making methods. Nose: A wonderful aromatic depth. The wine's fruity, spicy and floral notes intertwine to reveal a highly complex nose; wild peach, plum and orange peel precede saffron and tonka bean, complemented by a fresh, mineral aspect. Palate: Dense and harmonious in the mouth. A creamy effervescence and fresh structure, with a gentle saline finish. Pairings: Cured ham. Seared scallops or scallops tartare. Grilled lobster. Chicken in a light creamy sauce.
