  • About this winery

    Bollinger is a truly classic Champagne house and one of the world’s greatest wine producers, renowned for wines that epitomize Champagne’s unparalleled reputation for elegance and refinement. Founded in 1829 in the village of Ay, by 1884 Bollinger had received a Royal Warrant from Queen Victoria. Adding to its prestige, 1979 marked the beginning of one of the longest standing relationships in cinematic history; Bollinger has been the exclusive Champagne of James Bond ever since. From 1941...

    A good rest on lees in the cellar through to May 2015 has seen this salmon-colored rosé develop a wealth of dried porcini mushroom aromas that really make a savory statement. It's gently smoky and shows some dried cherry fruits too – a gastronomic dream! The palate's smoothly cut with creamy red-cherry-fruit flavors and hints of pink grapefruit. It freshens into the finish. Thanks especially to a complex layered structure, this really is a brilliant rosé.

    Radiant, star-bright ruby with vermilion highlights. Burgundian scents of the forest, with fraises des bois, undergrowth and even redcurrant. A silky, captivating mouthfeel, the palate cloaking without being heavy. The expression of a warm, later harvest, and the rosé is more distinguished and elegant than the blanc in 2005.

    June 2016

    Wonderfully aromatic and finely detailed, with a layered profile of dried apricot, raw almond, honey, ground coffee, nutmeg and orange bergamot. Shows power and focus, yet this is set in a sleek, finely knit frame. The chalky minerality firms the long, smoky finish.

    If the salmon/orange doesn’t grab your attention, the generous spicy gingerbread and brioche nose will. Citrus drenched cherries and redcurrants mark the fruit that seemed to jump out of the glass with bubbles. This is a dinner wine that is big enough to suit most birds or Asian foods. If dessert is your game, the winery suggests rhubarb and red berry crumble. The wine is a 72/28 blend of pinot noir and chardonnay and 95 percent Grand Cru fruit. it is cellared for twice the required time, and bears a modest dosage of 7 grams per liter. A must for rosé champagne lovers. Champagne Bollinger was established in 1829 by Jacques Bollinger and Paul Renaudin. Mme Lily Bollinger played a key role in the company’s development between 1941 and 1977. Today it is managed by her great-nephew, Ghislain de Montgolfier. The style, while always muscular with body, depth and power, has changed of late. There is a new finesse here adding to the appeal of what was already one of the best sparkling wine producers on the planet. Some 70 percent of the grapes come from the firm's own vineyards, and uniquely some 80 percent of the harvest is barrel-fermented, with the wines being kept on their yeast lees for an extended period of time – as much as a decade for the R.D.
