This vineyard’s champagnes benefit from a very special spirit and artisanality—everything with a Bollinger label has assured extraordinary quality and great personality. An enormously vinous mouthful, combining floral and fruity aromas with the enriching notes, vanilla, given by vinification in oak: 6 months in barrel. Intense, complex and structured, it fills the palate with a wonderful sweet and sour sensation. It evolves very well in the mouth, expanding for greater roundness in the second glass. It has quite a few years ahead of it, in accordance with the quality of the grapes, the prolonged aging (never less than 5 years), and the excellence of the vintage.

Composed of 63% Pinot Noir and 37% Chardonnay, from 82% Grand Cru vineyards and 18% Premier Crus.
