[ Tasting Notes: ]

“I tasted the new NV rosé at Bollinger last week, based on the 06 and 07 vintages, and it amazed me as it did in the same room a year prior. Gorgeous elegance of rose petals and strawberry hull, beautiful minerality and the utmost poise. How can the bold Bollinger recipe create such delicacy?”
