Bollinger Rosé is a champagne produced by the Bollinger winery, in Ay, in the heart of the Champagne region.
Since its foundation in 1829 in the Montagne de Reims, Maison Bollinger continues to make and age its champagnes as it has always done, managing to imprint the famous Bollinger identity seal, synonym of quality and prestige, year after year.
Bollingerhas 174 hectares of its own vineyards available to produce most of its wines. 85% of these vineyards are classified as Grand Cru and Premier Cru, with two outstanding plots with pre-phylloxera vines, Clos Saint-Jacques and Chaudes Terres.
One of the most appreciated unique features of Bollinger are the reserve wines, bottled and aged in a corked magnum and classified by vintages, thus forming one of the largest reserves of this type of wine in the area.
Bollinger Rosé is a champagne made with Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier from vineyards with over 85% of Grands and Premiers Crus. The soils are clayey-sandy with the presence of limestone.
The grapes are harvested at the optimum moment of ripeness, using an exhaustive selection process before undergoing the traditional vinification of this champagne, by fermenting a part in used barrels. Once combined with 5-6% of red wine, it is aged in the bottle together with its lees for a minimum of 36 months. Once disgorged, it is left to stand for a minimum of 6 months before being put on the market.
Bollinger Rosé is a structured champagne that is fruity and fresh. Aromas of red fruit, currants, strawberries and cherry stand out in the nose, along with the light notes of ageing. The palate is velvety, with a structure and freshness provided by the fine bubbles that crown it. A technically perfect champagne.
