Bollinger Rose Champagne. The creation of this non-vintage rose has been long in the making and a dream of the House for over six years. A subtle combination of structure, length and vivacity, with a tannic finish due
to the adjunction of red wine ; bubbles as fine as velvet ; flavours of wild berries
Tasting notes, The Wine Advocate, rating 91 points
A very fine, almost languid mousse. The nose takes a little coaxing at first, hints of cooking apples, wild strawberries with a touch of brioche and rose petals. Good definition. The palate is well defined, very good acidity, a little taciturn at first, lots of mineralite rather than fruit intensity, reserved and perhaps stony in character. Very precise, not the rose you would pour to seduce a woman but to show her you have taste.
62% Pinot Noir, 24% Chardonnay, 14% Meunier Only 5 to 6% red wine added due to its power Over 85% Grands and Premiers crus
Cellar aged for more than twice the time required by the appellation
Moderate, 7 to 8 grams per liter
To the eye: bronze tones combined with the intense depth of a great red wine.
To the nose: the nobility of red berries: hints of red currant, cherry and wild strawberry ;
a spicy touch, not unlike Special Cuvée.
To the palate: a subtle combination of structure, length and vivacity, with a tannic finish due
to the adjunction of red wine ; bubbles as fine as velvet, flavours of wild berries.
Food pair. Crayfish, lobster, one-side cooked salmon.
Japanese cuisine or not-so-spicy Asian cuisine.
Fruit based dessert: fruit soup, strawberry tart, raspberries.
With its intimate and unusual flavours, Bollinger Rosé can be served for afternoon
tea, Bollinger-style. It is also perfect for a picnic on a summer afternoon, as a predinner
drink or served with a fruity and tart dessert. To fully appreciate its unique style,
bouquet and aromas, Bollinger Rosé is best served between 10 and 12°C. Enjoy it now!
The Bollinger House also makes magnificent red wines, such as the legendary Côte
aux Enfants, in Aÿ.
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... Because only great wines make great champagnes.
