To the eye, salmon coloured with orange hues. To the nose, redcurrant and almond aromas followed by spicy and grilled notes flavours of a great Burgundy Pinot Noir. To the palate surprisingly wine-like but also very lively aromas of cherries, or kirsch and toasted bread.

Producer

The Bollinger Champagne House accepts nothing less than excellence and has been creating prestigious, characterful and elegant wines in its unique style since 1829. Most of the 165 hectares of vineyards are classified Grand Cru or Premier Cru with Pinot Noir dominating. The House lets its wines mature for twice as long as the appellation requirement as they believe that great wines need the luxury of time to develop their full character. Bollinger's production secrets have been passed on from generation to generation and are preserved even when this choice might prove challenging. It is the first Champagne House to obtain the highly respected Patrimoine Vivant seal of quality which rewards exceptional craftsmanship and skill.

Region

The Champagne region is one of the country’s most important wine regions and has been producing champagne for over 1000 years. South of Reims, Épernay is the capital and main trading ground for the area. French wine laws state that only sparkling wines from this region can be labelled as Champagne and they must adhere to strict appellation standards. 

The chalky soil (good for both water retention and also drainage) is perfect for the grapes needed for Champagne; Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, and Chardonnay. Unlike the southern regions of France, Champagne has a mild, steady climate with low levels of sunshine with the ideal amount of rain. Wines from this region command high prices, often considerably more than other sparkling wines. We recommend Billecart Salmon Cuvee Brut Sous Bois or Egly Ouriet Blanc de Noirs Grand Cru.
