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 rosť, which offers mouthwatering acidity and finely detailed texture. Drink now through 2020.

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.
Beautifully pale in color, this is serious rosť. Its rich and dry character and its red cherry and raspberry flavors are tied together by the finest acidity.
From K&L's Champagne Buyer, Gary Westby: "This is spectacular rosť--perhaps the best non-vintage rosť 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 rosť 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."
