- Iconic rosé cuvée well-known in James Bond in an amazing Magnum format (1.5L)

- Pinot dominant style from the great 2007 vintage, fermented and matured in oak

- Will pair well with a richer dish like Veal with a bread and parmesan crust

LGA Rosé is LGA with a tiny inclusion of red wine from the same vintage. 

Its purity of red cherry fruits and violet fragrance are heightened even by its tiny dose of red wine, highlights its cherry kernel and anise tones. Understated secondary complexity in golden fruit cake, roast almonds and fruit mince spice will heighten with age.

Fine tannin grip and chalk minerality lace seamlessly on a very long and refined finish that lingers very long with red cherry purity.


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 which they have never deviated from. 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, being the largest (along with Krug) than any other producer in the region. Currently Bollinger own some 164 hectares in some of the best vineyard sites across champagne.

 

"70% pinot, mainly from Aÿ and Verzenay; 30% chardonnay, mainly from Avize, Chouilly and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger; a blend of 13 crus, 95% grand cru and 5% premier cru; a higher proportion of pinot noir than usual because 2005 was believed to be a great season for pinot noir; entirely fermented and matured in oak barrels; aged under natural cork 8.5 years on lees; 6g/L dosage"
