Vieilles Vignes Françaises 2007

The eternal soul of Champagne

Pinot Noir derived from two single plots adjacent to the House in Aÿ: 
Non-grafted vines grown in the traditional en foule layering system and worked entirely by hand.


Blend of the 2007 vintage 
100% Pinot Noir Grand cru (Blanc de Noirs).  At Bollinger, only the highest quality harvests become a vintage: in 2007, the Vieilles Vignes Françaises parcels were harvested on 31 August and produced an exceptional Pinot Noir. 
Maturation 
Cellar aged for more than twice the time required by the appellation 
Dosage 
Low, 8 grams per liter.


To the eye 
A deep golden colour
To the nose 
A wonderful aromatic complexity. Initial floral notes of lime blossom and chamomile, developing into notes of truffle and acacia honey.
To the palate 
Impressive intensity, opulence and balance. Aromas of candied lemon, tarte tatin and gingerbread. 
Exceptional persistence, finishing on sweet spices evocative of cinnamon.


White caviar, Alba Truffle


Vieilles Vignes Françaises 2007 can be paired with the finest dishes but can also help create a special occasion on its own; wine connoisseurs will share it thoughtfully, enjoying the opportunity to try its rare unmatched flavours, if only once… To fully appreciate its unique style, bouquet and aromas, it is best to serve Vieilles Vignes Françaises 2007 between 8 and 10°C. You can enjoy Vieilles Vignes Françaises 2007 right away, or choose to age it in your cellar.


In the early 20th century, the vines of Champagne were destroyed by phylloxera. In order to fight the devastating insect, everything had to be replanted using American rootstock. Everything, except two Bollinger plots in Aÿ classified as Grand cru which remained untouched: Chaudes Terres and Clos St Jacques. To this day, these two plots are grown the traditional way, following the ‘provignage’ method, worked by hand and even sometimes with the help of a cart-horse. Bollinger Vieilles Vignes Françaises is a symbol of a bygone era: an extraordinary and moving legacy. 
A total of 3 132 numbered bottles of the 2007 Vieilles Vignes Françaises vintage were produced.
