Nicknamed “Boll” by those from Champagne and “Bolly” by the English, the timeless and legendary Bollinger Champagne House forms part of a small circle of three great Champagne houses. Bollinger champagne’s style is defined through its remarkable precision, which is brought to every moment of production. With a respect for tradition, riddling done by hand, natural corks for magnum reserve bottles and the last permanent cooper in the region, excellence has symbolised Bollinger champagne culture since its creation in 1829 in Aÿ. More than an art, it is a heritage.
Bollinger's uniqueness comes from its 174 hectares divided into seven main vineyards in Champagne, 85% of which are Grands Crus and Premiers Crus, making the house one of the few to produce its own grapes for its blends. Pinot Noir is the house's signature grape variety and represents 60% of the vineyard's vines.
Produced based on the 2013 vintage, this B13 Blanc de Noirs Brut de Bollinger is made exclusively with grapes from 5 crus, of which 92% are Grands Crus and 8% are Premiers Crus. The dosage is 6 g/l.
An authentic expression of the excellence of the Montagne de Reims vineyards, this B13 Blanc de Noirs Brut de Bollinger is a special tribute to the oenological and environmental values advocated by the house.
Presented in a 100% recyclable box made of mostly recycled materials, this limited edition box set showcases both the singularity of the vintage and the pioneering vision of the Bollinger Champagne House.
The year 2013 was characterised by a particularly long winter, with numerous episodes of snow and frost. Despite these less than ideal conditions and a later harvest compared to recent vintages, the quality of the 2013 harvest marked the history of the Bollinger Champagne House.
