- Well-made and richer style of rosé with Pinot noir taking the lead

- Perfectly seared salmon with tarragon sauce and a crunchy side-salad

- Renowned house working with oak barrels and Pinot noir

This rosé is made using just 6% of red wine as Bollinger make quite powerful red wine that has been aged in barrel for 12 months. Pinot noir makes up 62% of the blend with 24% Chardonnay and 14% Pinot meunier.

It is matured in 3-5 years and they use between 50-60% reserve wines. The outcome is red citrus fruit like pink grapefruit and blood orange, plus fresh raspberries and a star anise spice accent. 

It has a crunchy and fresh palate, with swathes of fresh redcurrant and cherry kernel - kirsch-like.There is a little bite on the finish from the tannin too which provides a pleasurable drying finish. 

Bollinger remain quite possibly one of the most famous family-owned champagne houses of all. Bollinger are well known for their dominance of the powerful and expressive Pinot noir from Aÿ where they were founded, their use of magnums for production of all their wines and a traditional wine making style incorporating fermentation in oak barrels from which they have never deviated. They still have their own in-house cooper who makes and manages their stock of some 3,500 barrels! That equates to about 1 million bottles being fermented in barrel - that is the largest (along with Krug) of any other producer in the region. Currently Bollinger own some 164 hectares in some of the best sites across Champagne.

This rose is one of our favourites - it is delicate with rose and fresh strawberry notes but with the biscuity fullness and structure you would expect on classic Bollinger Special Cuvée. You could serve this cuvée any day time of the day but it is best with white meats or smoked salmon. We suggest a perfectly seared salmon with tarragon sauce and a crunchy side-salad.
