Pinot Noir Chardonnay Pinot Meunier French Champagnes, Ay France
Ay and Verzenay for Pinot Noir. Avize, Chouilly and Mesnil-sur-Oger for Chardonnay. 95% Grands Cru, 5% Premier, 5% Côte aux Enfants. Bollinger have never compromised their traditions, demanding nothing but the elite of Grands and Premiers Crus. A strict selection of harvest, the extended cellar ageing, manual riddling and disgorgement. Pinot Noir dominates the Cepage, it defines La Grande Annee Rose and contributes vinosity, masculinity, complexity and strength. Pinot Meunier imparts freshness, elegance and finesse.
Madame Bollinger agreed to the release of a Rose under her name, only if it would be the most superlative pink wine in all Champagne. The unique accord between a great vintage Champagne and a superior parcel of red wine from a single, exceptional block of Pinot Noir, the illustrious Cote aux Enfants. To produce a red wine of such high quality within the Champagne region is a challenge, true Bollinger.
Salmon mousse, orange hues. Fresh bread bouquets, gingerbread and cinnamon, oak floral notes. Flower blossom and citrus zests to the palate, red currant, cerise et frais de bois.
