Bollinger Brut Rosé Champagne

SKU #1041352 93 points James Suckling

 Beautifully crafted with a fresh, floral edge, as well as blood-orange, strawberry and peach aromas. Some subtle, bready complexity. The palate has a zippy, acid thread with a tangy, fresh berry finish. Drink now.  (9/2018)

93 points Wine Spectator

 This offers ripe plum and nectarine fruit, with mouthwatering acidity in abundance, as well as accents of anise, tea rose and orange peel. Bright and finely knit, featuring a satiny mousse and good focus through to the chalk-laced finish. (AN)  (8/2019)

 The NV Brut Rosé, which was first introduced in 2008, offers classic, slightly tertiary notes of spiced cherries, dried strawberries, and rose petals. Clean, crisp, and chiseled on the palate, it’s much more firm and tight than the Special Cuvée, yet has a great finish, impeccable balance, and bright acidity. A blend of 62% Pinot Noir, 24% Chardonnay and the rest Pinot Meunier, with 30% vinified in barrel, it spent 30 to 36 months on lees. Give it a year or so. 92+  (3/2018)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The latest release of Bollinger's NV Brut Rosé is also showing well, revealing scents of yellow orchard fruit, candied orange peel, pear, dried white flowers and spices. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, with good depth at the core, a youthfully frothy mousse and bright balancing acids, concluding with a dry, chalky finish. The Rosé is based on the Special Cuvée blend, with the addition of red wine from Bollinger's vineyards in Verzenay and their famous monopole La Côte aux Enfants. Drink through 2029. (WK)  (4/2019)

Jancis Robinson

 Pale-medium salmon with some onion-skin tones. Subtle vinosity, dark-chocolate touches and coffee lees. Savoury and feels complete – made as a rosé, not an afterthought. Delicate mousse, wild strawberry and orange-citrus, oxidative apple, nutty-chocolate lees. Lovely length. Superior to the Special Cuvée. 17/20 points. (TJ)  (3/2019)

K&L Notes

This is spectacular rosé--perhaps the best non-vintage rosé that I have ever had, and a great argument for the blender's 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. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne buyer)

This spectacular bottle delivers the vinous power that one would expect from Bollinger, but with elegant panache. It is one of the best rosés available at any price.

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
Sub-Region:

Champagne

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose.
