Marks and reviews
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 Aÿ. More than just an art, it is a heritage.
The strength of the Bollinger Champagne House lies in its vineyards. 174 hectares of vines divided into seven main vineyards, 85% of which are Grands Crus and Premiers Crus, making Bollinger one of the few Champagne houses to produce its own grapes for its blends.
Bollinger Grande Année Rosé 2007 was made from 14 Champagne crus, mostly from Aÿ and Verzenay for the Pinot Noir and Cramant and Oger for the Chardonnay.
Winemaking and ageing
Bollinger Grande Année Rosé 2007 was fermented exclusively in barrels. The ageing time was twice as long as that indicated in the appellation's charter, with maturation under cork. This Bollinger Rosé champagne was dosed at 7 grams per litre.

The nose mingles redcurrant and dried fig notes underlined by a menthol touch. The complex bouquet also gives off blonde tobacco and dried flower scents.
Grande Année Rosé 2007 expresses itself with finesse. Notes of mirabelle plum and kirsch combine with scents of cut hay on a structured palate.
