Bollinger Brut Rosé Champagne
There's a briny, mineral-tinged waft of seashore adding complexity to flavors of black cherry, grilled plum, pastry, graphite and almond cream in this vibrant rosé, which offers mouthwatering acidity and finely detailed texture. Drink now through 2020.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Pale, bright pink. Expressive aromas of fresh red berries, tangerine and toasty lees, with a suave floral nuance. Deeply pitched but quite energetic, offering pure strawberry and cherry preserve flavors underscored by zesty citrus and mineral notes. Becomes richer and smokier with air and finishes with excellent clarity, thrust and persistence. For such a powerful wine this Champagne is impressively lithe and incisive.
Seductively light in color, this is based on Pinot Noir. It has a fine balance and a touch of toast. The fresh red-fruit and citrus flavors harmonize into a complex whole. Like many Bollinger Champagnes, it’s a delicious, full-bodied selection that’s best suited for food.
Wine & Spirits
A clean, fragrant rosé with a mouthfilling texture, this balances the warmth of its strawberry flavors with citrus pith notes of ruby red grapefruit. It's smoky and tart enough to match spicy Asian food.
From K&L's Champagne Buyer, Gary Westby: "This is spectacular rosé--perhaps the best non-vintage rosé that I have ever had, and a great argument for the blenders art. Concentrated yet completely effortless, this barrel fermented gem has everything one could want from a rosé Champagne. The power is in the wine, but always takes a back seat to balance. It is dosed very lightly at 10 grams per liter."
