Founded in Aÿ in 1829, Bollinger, the family-owned house, is one of the most prestigious Champagne houses. Appointed, as well as seven other Champagne brands, by the Court of England, Bollinger is a symbol of excellence. Bollinger's vintage Champagnes are produced only with vintages deemed to be perfectly balanced.
In the constant quest for excellence, the style of the Bollinger Champagne House is the result of rigorous attention to detail, from the vineyard to the sourcing of the grapes, from the vinification in small oak barrels to the ageing of vintage Champagnes for more than ten years, twice the appellation’s required time.
Bollinger is renowned for its unique know-how and its blending mastery, producing iconic cuvées merging both great finesse and unique personality.
Created in 2008, Bollinger rosé comprises 85% of Grands and Premiers crus from three plots located in Verzenay (Poirier, Saint-Pierre, Montboeuf). Reflecting Bollinger's constant quest for excellence, these plots are worked with the same dilligence as the emblematic La Côte aux Enfants plot.
The vinification and ageing
The ageing in the cellar is more than twice the appellation’s required time. The dosage for this Champagne is approximately 7 to 8 g/litre.
Bollinger rosé comprises a blend of Pinot Noir (62%), Chardonnay (24%) and Meunier (14%). Only 5 to 6% of red wine is added to the blend.
The colour shows subtle golden hues. The bubbles are fine and delicate.
The nose combines delicious notes of red fruit (redcurrant, cherry and wild strawberry) with a slightly spicy hint.
Structured and lively, the palate combines good length to a fine sparkle with delicious aromas of wild red fruit.
Food and wine pairing
Ideal as an aperitif, Bollinger rosé also goes well with a variety of dishes. Langoustine, lobster, salmon, finely spiced Japanese or Asian cuisine or fruit-based desserts (fruit soup, strawberry tart, raspberries) will enhance the aromatic finesse of this Champagne.
For an optimal tasting, serve between 10° and 12°C.
