NEW RELEASE : Bollinger PN VZ16 (2016 Base)

Pinot Noir is one of the pillars of the Bollinger style, & the House has forged its reputation by showcasing this particular variety. Bollinger has so far only produced one champagne made exclusively from this variety: the very rare Vieilles Vignes Françaises cuvée. 

To the eye

To the nose
