More About This Wine
Founded in 1829 by a German national and two Frenchmen, the Bollinger Champagne house, located in Ay, has been producing Pinot based wines for almost two centuries.
90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2001
($80) Light bronze color. Mature Champagne notes of brown butter, walnut, apple cider and maple syrup on the nose, along with fresher pear and mineral nuances. Rich, full-bodied and concentrated; a rather powerfully structured Champagne with noteworthy density and firm acidity. Considering the mature flavors, this wine is fresh and focused in the middle palate. Seems longer and more gripping than a bottle I tasted a year ago, perhaps the strengthening effect of another year on the lees prior to disgorgement.
