Description

The subtlety and freshness of a great vintage rosé champagne

The estate

Nicknamed “Boll” by those from Champagne and “Bolly” by the English, the timeless and legendary Bollinger Champagne House forms part of a small circle of three great Champagne houses. Bollinger champagne’s style is defined through its remarkable precision, which is brought to every moment of production. With a respect for tradition, riddling done by hand, natural corks for magnum reserve bottles and the last permanent cooper in the region, excellence has symbolised Bollinger champagne culture since its creation in Aÿ. More than just an art, it is a heritage.

The vineyard

The strength of the Bollinger Champagne House lies in its vineyards. 174 hectares of vines divided into seven main vineyards, 85% of which are Grands Crus and Premiers Crus, which allow the House to be one of the few Champagne Houses to produce its own grapes for its blends.

The wine

The Grande Année Rosé 2012 is made from a selection of 21 Champagne crus, mainly Aÿ and Verzenay for the Pinot Noir, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger and Oiry for the Chardonnay.

Winemaking and ageing

Bollinger La Grande Année Rosé 2012 is entirely vinified in barrels. It is aged in the cellar for twice as long as the rules set out in the appellation's charter. Ageing was carried out under cork and the dosage of this Bollinger Rosé champagne is 8 grams per litre.

Blend

Pinot Noir (67 %)
Chardonnay (33 %)
This blend is completed with 5% of red wine from the Côte aux Enfants.
