- 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.
