Champagne Bollinger Rosé Brut NV

Champagne, FranceThis elegant rosé blends the power of Bolly with generous fruit, resulting in a savoury, serious Champagne. Powerful, with 30% oak ferment and ample time on the lees to up the mouthfeel and presence, Bolly's fame with pinot noir is shining here. The cuvée is 62/24/14 pinot noir, chardonnay, and pinot meunier plus five to six percent still red wine (pinot noir), from at least 85% Grand Cru and Premier Cru fruit. True to house style, this NV was from drawn from older vintages. Bollinger famously stores reserve wines in magnums under cork for up to 15 years to use in their wines, and 5-10% is in use here. Expansive on the creamy palate, with cherry, red currant, subtle smoked stone, and a luring stream of potent acidity through the lengthy, saline finish. Such polish, and poise, this is a beautiful wine now, and with much time ahead in the cellar.Tasted: 31 October 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 129.99 BCLS QC 99.25 SAQ Producer: Bollinger, ChampagneDistributors: Trialto Wine Group
