Winemaker Notes:

Grande Annee Brut Rose is salmon pink with copper highlights. Notes of red currant and almonds, then a spicy toasty aroma. Surprisingly vinous, but also very fresh. Cherry, or even kirsch, slightly toasty.

All Bollinger is there: presence and modesty, power and delicacy. This wine is not produced every year, as perfect maturity is required at the date of harvest. Thus, La Grande Annee Brut Rose remains an exception; it is a beautifully structured and full-bodied wine, with a deep color and intense aroma.

96 Points - James Suckling

A good rest on lees in the cellar through to May 2015 has seen this salmon-colored rosé develop a wealth of dried porcini mushroom aromas that really make a savory statement. It's gently smoky and shows some dried cherry fruits too – a gastronomic dream! The palate's smoothly cut with creamy red-cherry-fruit flavors and hints of pink grapefruit. It freshens into the finish. Thanks especially to a complex layered structure, this really is a brilliant rosé. Drink now.

94 Points - Wine Spectator

Wonderfully aromatic and finely detailed, with a layered profile of dried apricot, raw almond, honey, ground coffee, nutmeg and orange bergamot. Shows power and focus, yet this is set in a sleek, finely knit frame. The chalky minerality firms the long, smoky finish. Disgorged July 2015. Drink now through 2026.
