Bollinger Brut Rosé Champagne
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.
Sleek and elegant, this finely knit rosé Champagne offers flavors of ripe cherry, blood orange granita and slivered almond, with aromatic accents of graphite, star anise and verbena. Long and creamy on the vibrant finish. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. Drink now through 2028. 1,025 cases imported.
Deep red-berry nose, plus some nectarine, spice and candied-orange notes. Powerful and fresh, the hint of tannin from the red-wine component of the blend neatly balanced by the creaminess. Excellent textural complexity, then a long, delicately spicy and mineral finish. Disgorged in June 2021. Drink now.
The NV Champagne Brut Rosé has a pale pink hue and lifts with a soft bouquet of red raspberry, apricot, bread dough, blood orange, and delicate smoke. The palate is approachable, with well-tailored structure, pleasant bitter citrus notes of orange and grapefruit, and a floral element through the finish. It is well-balanced and versatile for pairing at the table. Drink now or over the next 10-15 years.
The latest release of Bollinger's NV Brut Rosé is showing especially well, offering up complex aromas of sweet stone fruit, honeycomb, freshly baked bread and orange oil, followed by a medium to full-bodied, pillowy and vinous palate. Layered and concentrated, with a pretty pinpoint mousse and ripe but racy acids, it concludes with a long, expansive finish.
