Bollinger’s style is praised for its heady richness and underlying freshness.  Precision and pinot noir dominate the blend. Their ability to weave complexity into their wines is spellbinding, an existential delight for us drinkers!

La Grande Année is their exceptional Prestige Cuvée. Made only in standout vintages from the best sites in the Marne Valley, this provides a refreshing and original viewpoint of Champagne. It’s release causes reverberations worldwide, and rightly so. And we have the honours of showcasing the scintillating 2008.

‘The wines are always suave and impeccably polished—it’s unsurprising that Bollinger is James Bond’s champagne of choice, although personally I find it more appropriately suited to Sean Connery than to Daniel Craig’

Peter Liem

Join us for dinner to celebrate the much anticipated release of La Grande Année from the magnificent 2008 vintage. The charming Guy de Rivoire from Champagne Bollinger will be here to guide us through an enviable selection of wines from the House, matched to dishes thoughtfully prepared by Peter Sheldon, head chef of the European.
