Grande Annee 2000: an incredible Champagne

A serious fizz, this. A step up from the delicious 1999, and reasonably priced for a prestige cuvee. A Christmas treat?

Champagne Bollinger Grande Année 2000
Pale yellow colour. Fine aromatic nose is almost floral, with summer meadow hints and notes of toast and fresh lemons. The palate is concentrated and taut with lovely savoury herby, toasty notes, fresh persistent apple and lemon fruit, a hint of vanilla richness and some structure. A beautiful wine. 94/100 (£50 Majestic, £59.99 Tesco)
