The unique vision of the taste of Pinot Noir by Maison Bollinger

In Champagne, the 2018 vintage was characterised by abundant yields and an early harvest. Chalk moderated conditions in Grands Crus vineyards, resulting in particularly outstanding, very concentrated grapes with a natural average ripeness and powerful acidity


To the eye

Golden with bronze reflections


To the nose

Notes of honey, fruit jellies , quince and candied citrus. Aromas of marzipan and blood orange complement a nose full of sweet spices and a refreshing hint of menthol.


On the palate

Serious , understated and rich, beautifully expansive with a finish full of confit citrus which enhances the wine’s freshness.
