Champagne Bollinger

750ML

£65.00

La Côte aux Enfants is a great red wine from the legendary Aÿ plot: a pure Pinot Noir, the combination of an exceptional plot and a highly skilled Burgundy winemaking method which is very rare in the Champagne region. The region originally owed its fame to its red wines. Favourites of King Henri IV, the Pinot Noirs from the town of Aÿ were the most popular wines of the French court. La Côte aux Enfants comes from a steep, small 70 acre plot just outside Aÿ which Jacques Bollinger himself reconstituted patiently, at the beginning of the 20th century, from over 50 differently owned plots. It is exclusively planted with Pinot Noir and is a designated Grand Cru site. Since 2009, all vines grown on that site are organically farmed.

With a beautiful warm garnet colour, the nose delivers spicy notes with intense aromas of elderflower, black cherry and blueberry. On the palate, elegant black fruit aromas of cherries in eau de vie and blackcurrant, accompanied by delicate notes of pepper and clove. Liquorice on the finish, rounded with great tannic structure.

Description

“I drink Champagne when I’m happy and when I’m sad. Sometimes I drink it when I’m alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I’m not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise, I never touch it―unless I’m thirsty.” – Lily Bollinger

Since 1829, Bollinger has been producing great Chamapanges with a powerful, sophisticated and complex style. Known for their uncompromising ethos, the majority of Bollinger’s production is made using their own grapes, and most of these are fermented in barrel to help create the rich house style.
