Bollinger PN TX17 is the third edition in the Bollinger PN range, showcasing
the specific characteristics of the Tauxières terroir, the main cru of its blend.
Made exclusively from Pinot Noir, Bollinger PN has been crafted by the House
to express its unique vision of this specific grape variety. A predominant grape
across the range, Pinot Noir is the pillar of the Bollinger style, and the House
has forged its reputation by showcasing this variety. Bollinger PN embodies the
ambition to bring to light the variety of expressions of Pinot Noir by selecting
the finest varietal from several terroirs, each contributing a unique component
to the overall taste. The significant proportion of Tauxières in this edition’s blend
brings the characteristics of the Pinot Noir grown in this terroir to the wine:
tension, precision and complexity. The grapes from the 2017 harvest are wellbalanced, with a natural alcohol content of 10.1% and an acidity of 7 g/L. The
reserve wines contribute to the wine’s exceptional aromatic intensity, especially
the Pinots Noirs aged in magnums for almost 11 years, bringing further
complexity to the blend.
The aroma of this edition of TX17 is first characterised by notes of dried flowers,
joined by aromas of tobacco and mocha. The nose is sophisticated, subtle and
complex, rounding off with notes of liquorice and dried fruit. The palate is fruity
and highly refreshing, with notes of apricot, peach and exotic fruit, followed by
flavours of acacia honey and spices. A lively, linear wine with great clarity.
How to serve
Pair with tomato tartlet, Tomme des Ardennes cheese or dried apricots with
honey-lemon sauce. To fully appreciate its unique style and aromas, PN TX17
is best served between 8 and 10°C. Enjoy now or leave it in the cellar to develop
“A tender nose shows of a sense of fresh, sweet cream and crushed
berry – unusually with a hint of blueberry, followed by Red Delicious
apple and a beautifully lifted and aromatic note of tangerine. The
palate is sinuous and elegant, there is wonderful depth of fruit and
that lovely signature creaminess of Bollinger expressed in superfine
foam. There is subtle length that only emphasises the depth of
flavour. Very elegant, very expressive, as vivid, energetic and vibrant
as the previous releases under this series. Lovely.”
