A 150cl Magnum bottle of the excellent Bollinger Rose presented in a Bollinger Gift Box. The creation of this non-vintage Rosé was a dream of the House for over six years. Bronze tones combined with the intense depth of a great red wine. Bright, fresh, red berry aromas: hints of red currant, cherry and wild strawberry with a slight spicy touch.
On the palate; bubbles as fine as velvet; a subtle combination of structure, length and vivacity, with a tannic finish due to the adjunction of red wine; seductive hints of strawberry and red fruit are perfectly contrasted with rich toasty elements but retaining a dry acidity in the mouth.
The lively, joyous sparkle of the fruit is always contained by the wine's precise structure, which gains in fullness and climaxes with mellow notes that stay on the palate and resound in the memory for a long time.
In the meticulous House style, Bollinger Rosé is modelled on the Special Cuveé blend, combining the fruits of previous harvests plus the addition of reserve wines from their cellars in Ay. The final
component, which provides colour and delicate aromas of ripe red fruits, is a proportion of still red wine coming exclusively from Bollinger's Grand Cru Vineyards in the Cote d'Ay and Verzenay.
This non-vintage interpretation is true to its distinctive house style and heritage, which gives reason to believe it would have been granted Mme Bollinger's approval.
