Bollinger, Brut Grande Année Aÿ 1989

Bollinger Grande Annee 1989

61% Pinot Noir; 39% Chardonnay.

Butterscotch color.  Heady, indulgent nose: corn fritter, walnut agave, porcini and white mocha.  A drenched, fat, chocolatey mouthful.  Dense, well-oiled orchard and tropical fruit: fuyu persimmon, cherimoya, white sapote.  Big and blowsy: it lacks zip.  A lurid Grand Annee to remind you of the ’76.
