Bollinger VZ16 Blanc De Noir *Strictly limited
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
A colour with golden undertones.
To the nose
Opens with fruity notes of apple, rhubarb, quince and mirabelle plum. After a few moments, hazelnut aromas complement the aromatic palette.
On the palate
A wonderful creamy effervescence yields to a delectable and expressive quality.
Exotic flavours, with brioche and hints of stewed fruit, precede a saline finish.
