Champagne ᐧ France
Grape varieties: Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier
Champagne Bollinger was established in 1829 by Jacques Bollinger and to this day is still family owned. Benefitting from ownership of 166 hectares of vineyards in the finest Premier and Grand Champagne, Bollinger wines are deﬁned as much by the vines the grapes come from, as by the blending process, or the House’s century old barrels in which the wines mature. Bollinger is a true Champagne icon and it’s clear to see why. Bollinger Rosé demonstrates unique blending and red-winemaking skills: a true alchemy and a very technical wine. Since Bollinger Rosé was created in 2008, the Poirier Saint-Pierre and Montboeuf plots, in Verzenay, are worked in the same style as the Côte aux Enfants plot to complete the production. A small amount (between 5 and 6%) of Pinot Noir is vinified as red wine, helping to add a powerful element to the finished wine.
On the nose, hints of red currant, cherry and wild strawberry along with a spicy touch, not unlike Special Cuvée. The palate has good structure, length, depth and vivacity, with a velvety mousse and lingering flavours of wild berries.
