Assembly

B13 : the excellence of the vineyards of the Montagne de Reims

B13 is a Blanc de Noirs champagne assembled using 100% pinot noir, and is a very pure and chiselled expression of this variety. The cuvée comprises just five crus, 92% of them Grands Crus and 8% Premiers Crus.

This champagne has spent over 7 years on the lees and has a low dosage of 6 grams per litre.

Sensation

The reflection of a unique year

The Champagne region faced unprecedented climate conditions in 2013 with a long winter that brought snow and frost, a mild and wet spring followed by a scorching summer peppered with violent storms. Despite the inclement weather, Champagne Bollinger raised the wine produced from this harvest to the rank of vintage, creating a limited edition: B13.

To the eye

A colour with golden shimmers.

To the nose

This vintage is rich and complex on the nose. It opens with notes of ripe fruits, fruit jellies and almond paste, rounded off with aromas of mirabelle plum and vine peach.

On the palate

On tasting, generosity and elegant fruit with flavours of pear, fresh almonds and tarte tatin are marked by the chiselled, mineral expression of pinot noir bringing citrus and candied lemon notes. Velvety persistence with a saline hint on the finish.
