1999 Bollinger La Grande Année, Champagne

A bit more Chardonnay in this ”GA” (37 %) and it shows in a very positive way. You still have the classic Bollinger dark glowing fruit with dark bread, but they are secondary here with lots of lily flowers, lime and lemon. Really crisp baby even though the more bold Bollinger style came forward to time and warmth in the glass it never ever lost its upright posture. The best young GA I have ever tasted.
