Details of production
Bollinger Rosé demonstrates unique blending and red-winemaking skills: a true alchemy and a very technical wine. Since Bollinger Rosé was created in 2008, the Poirier Saint-Pierre and Montboeuf plots, in Verzenay, are worked in the same style as the Côte aux Enfants plot to complete the production. A small amount (between 5 and 6%) of Pinot Noir is vinified as red wine, helping to add a powerful element to the finished wine.
Bronze tones. On the nose, hints of redcurrant, cherry and wild strawberry along with a spicy touch, not unlike Special Cuvée. The palate has good structure, length, depth and vivacity, with a tannic finish due to the addition of red wine. A velvety mousse and lingering flavours of wild berries.
How to serve
Best served between 10 and 12°C. Pairs well with a plethora of foods. Lobster, salmon and Asian cuisine with minimal spice along with fruit based desserts: fruit soup, strawberry tart, and raspberries. With its intimate and unusual flavours, Bollinger Rosé can be served for afternoon tea, Bollinger-style.
“A wonderful rose that is generous, rich, filled with red berry flavors while still having the core backbone of minerality and tension. A beautiful rose with a lingering finish.” 94/100 Jeannie Cho Lee MW, november 2016 Bollinger Rosé
