Bollinger, La Grande Année, 1990

RRP £196

This wine was perhaps the tasting’s greatest surprise. It came with such drive and linearity that it was hard to imagine it to be a 1990. Alongside sweet fruit, ashes, grappa, burned sugar and straw notes, there were lemony tones accentuating the zingy feel. Almost at its peak now.
