Description

The freshness and aromatic purity of a Bollinger Blanc de Noirs Brut champagne

The estate

Nicknamed "Boll" by the people of Champagne and "Bolly" by the English, the timeless and legendary Bollinger Champagne House is one of the small circle of great Champagne houses. The style of Bollinger Champagne is defined by the exemplary precision that goes into every step of the winemaking process. Respect for tradition, hand riddling of bottles, corking of reserve magnums, the region's last permanent cooper - this taste for excellence has symbolised the whole culture of Bollinger Champagne since it was founded in Aÿ in 1829. More than an art, it is a heritage.

The vintage

Bollinger owes its uniqueness to its 174 hectares divided between seven major Champagne vineyards, 85% of which are Grand and Premiers Crus, making the house one of the few to produce its own grapes for blending. The house's signature grape variety, Pinot Noir, accounts for 60% of the vineyard.

The wine

A new chapter in Bollinger's study of the expression and origins of Pinot Noir, Bollinger's PN AYC18 Blanc de Noirs Brut is made from illustrious vineyards in the communes of Aÿ, Tauxières and Verzenay. This Bollinger Blanc de Noirs harmoniously combines a base year (2018) with the oldest year, 2009. The dosage is 6g per litre.

Winemaking and ageing

The ageing period in the company's cellars is more than twice as long as indicated in the appellation's specifications.

Grape variety

Pinot Noir (100%).
