    Winemaker's Notes:

    Preceded by Madame Bollinger's La Grande Année Rosé, this non-vintage blend is the next addition to the Bollinger family. Crafted to reveal its own unique personality while steadfastly representing the family, the rich complexity with balanced acidity should come as no surprise to devotees.

    The color is Pale copper. Aromas of strawberries, raspberries and toasty lees. A full-bodied and round flavor. The Brut Rosé is in the traditional Bollinger style with added notes of red berries.

    Critical Acclaim:

    First released in 2008, it is in fact almost identical to the Special Cuvee with the addition of 5% deeply coloured pinot noir table wine made from grapes grown in Ay and Verzenay. This blend of ’06 and ’07 base wines was tiraged in ’07; it is still bright salmon-pink, and enters the mouth with almost juicy red berry fruit flavours before changing stride into spice and fruit paste, finishing with an almost toasty, savoury finish. Lovely wine.

    Lacy in texture, with bright, well-knit acidity and a streak of chalky minerality underscoring the suble flavors of strawberry,white peach, fresh giner and crystallized honey. A hint of salted almond lingers on the finish. 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.

    The pink color comes from the addition of six percent red wine, while red fruit flavors are inherent in the blend (62 percent pinot noir, 14 percent meunier and 24 percent chardonnay). This feels cool and generous in its ripe red berry flavors, then extremely dry in its red spice finish. Notes of honey and leather add complexity, focusing the wine on roast squab stuffed with wild mushrooms.

    The NV Brut Rose is a gorgeous wine laced with berries, flowers and chalk, all of which are woven together in a fabric of unusual class. The NV naturally doesn't have the weight and gravitas of the 2002 Rose La Grande Annee tasted alongside it, but it nevertheless shows striking purity and class in a more accessible, fresh style. It is another terrific effort from Bollinger. The NV Brut Rose is 62% Pinot Noir (of which 6% is still Pinot), 24% Chardonnay and 14% Pinot Meunier. This is Lot L819801. Disgorged May 30, 2008. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2015.

    Beautifully pale in color, this is serious rosé. Its rich and dry character and its red cherry and raspberry flavors are tied together by the finest acidity. Like most Bollinger Champagnes, this needs food.

    Very complex and wonderful Champagne. A bit expensive, but worth it for special occasions (Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays...)

    Well integrated and elegant, but just lacking in the weight and gravitas I'd expect from Bollinger at this price point. I wanted more lushness, more berry, and more brioche. Certainly pretty, but nothing fancier than a $50 entry level Tattinger.
