Our oenologists' opinion

Well-rounded

Lemon yellow colour with some golden reflections, nice bouquet of dried fruits, toasted bread, notes of almond paste, hints of kernels, kirsch, nice balance on a full-bodied, vinous champagne, the bubbles are quite creamy and melted, nice frank finish, tense with aromas of tarte tatin, roasting. Ideal with a meal.

Features

Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.

Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.

Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

Official Supplier of the English Court since 1884, Bollinger is also one of its most distinguished guests, the most famous secret agent.

Domain and appellation

  • Bollinger

    Founded in 1829, the prestigious Bollinger was born from the association of three men: Athanase Louis Emmanuel Hennequin - Count Villermont, Jacques Joseph Bollinger and Paul Renaudin. The name "Special Cuvée" by Bollinger has existed since 1911. The date "1846" refers to the bottle design. Indeed, it is characterized by a broader base and a thinner neck, typical of the 1840s.

     

    • Terroir: Located at Aÿ, converging point between three regions of the Champagne region (the Mountain of Reims, the Marne Valley and Côte des Blancs), this area of 160 hectares lies on clay-limestone and chalk gravel.

     

    • Viticulture: The vineyard covers two thirds of its grape requirements. Environmentally, Bollinger is the first house to obtain, in 2014, the new certification "Sustainable Viticulture in Champagne."

     

    • Vinification: The Special Cuvée is slightly dosed and aged in cellar for at least 3 years. This aging, much longer than required by the rules of the appellation, allows a perfect development of aromas.
