Bollinger Rose Champagne

Champagne, FRANCE
Reduced from $135.00
$125. 00
$1500.00 Dozen
ABV: 12%
Closure: Diam Cork

Produced from a blend of 62% Pinot Noir, 24% Chardonnay, 14% Meunier with only 5-6% red wine added. Over 85% coming from Grand and Premiers Cru vineyards.

A pillowy mousse slowly subsides to reveal a salmon pink coloured base that has a nibble stream of bubbles flowing through to the surface. Delightful strawberry, cherry, baked bread and yeast lees aromas fill the nostrils with hints of blood orange, toast and brioche also evident. Rich and full flavoured yet wonderfully finessed, the palate is engulfed with strawberry, cherry, yeast lees and brioche characters which are complimented by some delicate toast and chalky elements. Creamy textured it finishes dry with invigorating acidity and a long airy aftertaste. A wonderful Rose Champagne to savour through the summer months.
Alc. 12%

Other Reviews….
Deep red-berry nose, plus some nectarine, spice and candied-orange notes. Powerful and fresh, the hint of tannin from the red-wine component of the blend neatly balanced by the creaminess. Excellent textural complexity, then a long, delicately spicy and mineral finish. Disgorged in June 2021. Drink now.

Sleek and elegant, this finely knit rosé Champagne offers flavors of ripe cherry, blood orange granita and slivered almond, with aromatic accents of graphite, star anise and verbena. Long and creamy on the vibrant finish. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. Drink now through 2028.

The NV Brut Rosé, which was first introduced in 2008, offers classic, slightly tertiary notes of spiced cherries, dried strawberries, and rose petals. Clean, crisp, and chiseled on the palate, it’s much more firm and tight than the Special Cuvée, yet has a great finish, impeccable balance, and bright acidity. A blend of 62% Pinot Noir, 24% Chardonnay and the rest Pinot Meunier, with 30% vinified in barrel, it spent 30 to 36 months on lees. Give it a year or so.

The latest release of Bollinger's NV Brut Rosé is showing especially well, offering up complex aromas of sweet stone fruit, honeycomb, freshly baked bread and orange oil, followed by a medium to full-bodied, pillowy and vinous palate. Layered and concentrated, with a pretty pinpoint mousse and ripe but racy acids, it concludes with a long, expansive finish.
