In 1976, Bollinger Vintage became Grande Année; then, in 1997, "La" Grande Année… A name simple enough to illustrate its exceptional status: because only truly extraordinary years become vintage at Bollinger. La Grande Année made its screen débuts two years later, in James Bond’s Casino Royale. 70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay. 14 crus: mainly Aÿ and Verzenay for the Pinot Noir, Cramant and Oger for the Chardonnay. 91% Grands crus and 9% Premier crus. Exclusive use of the cuvee. Fermented entirely in barrels. At Bollinger, only very high quality harvests become vintage: the very early harvest and fresh qualities of the year 2007 make this vintage exceptional.
