I've yet to pop the cork on any.

Turns out I had the '02 Clouet and '02 Bollinger tonight at an event. The Clouet was much more approachable, and in fact delicious now but with time to spare. The Bolly was hulking, closed and desperately in need of lots of time.
There behind the glass lies a real blade of grass. Be careful as you pass. Move along. Move along.

Hmm. Different take on Bollinger. I had the 2002 James Bond 007 edition last night and it was pretty nice. Young but enjoyable. I don't know how different this is from the regular Bolly.
