Bollinger Grande Annee Rose 2005
This is Madame Bollinger's ultimate gift, the result of rare conditions: a blend between a great champagne and one of the very best red wines of the Champagne region, both from the same vintage. Madame Bollinger agreed to a Bollinger ros‚ under one condition, it had to be extraordinary, and that is how La Grande Annee Rose‚ was born: the unique blend between a great vintage champagne and a red wine from a unique plot, the legendary Cote aux Enfants. To produce a red wine of such high quality in the champagne region is a challenge: a rare treat, a true Bollinger
Bright Salmon hue, this wine hints at slightly greater use of Chardonnay in the blend however it is Pinot Noir Dominent, Displaying perhaps a more elegant feel to its handsome brother in the 2005 La Grande Annee. This wine continues put on weight with air and finishes plush and expansive. Shows signs of an extended life if one desires to revisit in a few years to come.
