Two Extraordinary Ways to Make Mother’s Day Sparkle

With Mother’s Day fast approaching, it seemed like the perfect time to share a collection of our favourite recipes, gifts and (of course!!) decadent and delicious Champagnes that will help make this special day sparkle. Nothing says “I love you!” quite like a decadent morning of delicious sips and bites, shared in the company of the extraordinary women in our lives. Today we want to bring your attention to a couple of incredible bottles of bubbly produced by a Champagne House well known for the role of an iconic matriarch – Champagne Bollinger.

n/v Champagne Bollinger Brut Rosé Champagne


“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?”

2002 Champagne Bollinger La Grande Année Champagne


“66% pinot noir and 34% chardonnay, 88% from Grand Cru vineyards, and 300 different parcels, all barrel-fermented in used oak. Once bottled it spends eight years on lees under cork prior to disgorgement, its dosage 8g/l. Despite the double jeopardy of cork, taint is seldom an issue. Deep green-gold, it is very complex yet supple and seductive, fresh yet mouthfilling, a cornucopia of almond, dried/crystallised fruits, spice, toast, and even a touch of honey. It rings my bell.”
