It’s all Bollinger: presence, modesty, power and delicacy.
And yet other notes come to the fore: small wild berries in the countryside on hot summer afternoons…
Lively fruit is contained by the wine’s precise structure, which gains in fullness and ends with mellow notes that stay on the palate and resound in the memory for a long time.

"Winemaker Mathieu Kauffmann. RS 9.8 g/l. 60% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay, 15% Pinot Meunier. Mid to pale salmon. Definitely lots of orange in there. But this, unlike 90% of pink champagnes, is real wine! Lots of development on the nose and a breadiness. Tastes dry and has a beginning, middle and end. Relatively low acid but not sickly. Just on the (most attractive) edge of decay. Surely oak and age have played a part here."
Rating 17/20 - Jancis Robinson OBE/MW, www.jancisrobinson.com (13/JUL/2012)
"The beauty of Bollinger is its undoubted pedigree. This is one classy lady, seductive and perfectly poised with a fine persistent bead and an array of ripe strawberries, cherries and raspberries."

Winery Tasting Notes
Bronze tones combined with the intense depth of a great red wine
The nobility of red berries: hints of red currant, cherry and wild strawberry A spicy touch, not unlike Special Cuvée.
A subtle combination of structure, length and vivacity, with a tannic finish due to the adjunction of red wine.
Bubbles as fine as velvet. Flavours of wild berries.
Crayfish, lobster, one-side cooked salmon
Japanese cuisine or not-so-spicy Asian cuisine
Fruit based dessert: fruit soup, strawberry tart, raspberries
