Bollinger Brut Rose NV
Preceded by Madame Bollinger's La Grande Année Rosé, this non-vintage blend is the next addition to the Bollinger family. Crafted to reveal its own unique personality while steadfastly representing the family, the rich complexity with balanced acidity should come as no surprise to devotees.
The color is Pale copper. Aromas of strawberries, raspberries and toasty lees. A full-bodied and round flavor. The Brut Rosé is in the traditional Bollinger style with added notes of red berries.
In total the wine is based on Pinot Noir (62%), and contains 24% Chardonnay and 14% Meunier. Over 85% of the wine comes from Grand and Premier Cru vineyards.
Brisk and bold, this mellows from a tough stance into long, mouthwatering flavors of red forest berries with a rich underlying oak structure. It includes five percent red wine from Verzenay and Aÿ, contributing to the color and to the lasting depth of flavor—this tastes good several days after opening, even after the bubbles have completely dissipated. - 94pts W&S
