Notes

72% Pinot Noir and 28% Chardonnay

For the first time ever, Bollinger is releasing an exclusive, one-of-a-kind Special Limited Edition 2006 Vintage Rosé. Comprised of 72% Pinot Noir and 28% Chardonnay from 9 exceptional Grand and Premier crus and aged for 10 years in Bollinger’s caves, this Rosé is a mind-blowing expression of the top 2006 Vintage. Bearing the power, aromatic fullness and structure that marks the house style, Bollinger’s Vintage Champagne line, 'La Grande Annee', differentiates itself from the rest. With the release of the their 'Special Limited Edition' 2006 Rose, this house has devised a bottling to further elevate the Bollinger name.

Tasting notes:
'The excellent 2006 vintage encouraged Bollinger to create a vintage rosé to reflect the quality of the grapes, especially the Pinot Noir. The fruit comes from 84% grand cru vineyards and 16% premiers cru vineyards. The wine was barrel fermented before spending over 10 years maturing in the bottle. It has a delicious Pinot character, with mulchy red fruits, accompanied by a soft Chardonnay note of delicate bruised apple and some woody breadth. It has a delicious streak of raspberry acidity, and comes across as a finessed and structured champagne that is only at the start of its life.' – Decanter Magazine, 94/100

Brilliant salmon-pink, with an inviting, decadent aroma of chocolate, mocha, and warm spices complemented by fragrances of flowers and dried fruit. A blend of Pinot Noir (72%), Chardonnay (28%); nine of the very best Grands and Premiers Crus were selected to blend a unique cuvée. More than 10 years ageing was necessary for this wine to express the true character of the 2006 vintage.
