Bollinger

In the heart of the village of Aÿ, the House Bollinger enjoys a universal prestige that is no longer to be proven, always in search of excellence. Proof of this is the fact that on the one hand, Bollinger is one of the Rares to own and produce their own grapes for the production of their vintages, but that it is also the only one to still have a cooper in residence. 

The latter maintains the 3500 barrels, some of which are over 100 years old, day after day. A centuries-old know-how that the House Bollinger is committed to perpetuate.

What is the history of the House of Champagne Bollinger?

The men behind Bollinger

The origin of the House Bollinger is intimately linked to Athanase de Villermont (born in Cuis in 1763 and died in Aÿ in 1840), an admiral in the French army who distinguished himself in the American War of Independence and in particular at the Battle of the Chesapeake on April 29, 1781. A few years later, he inherited a vast Domaine family estate in the vicinity of Aÿ, a terroir renowned for the quality of its wines, which were not officially named "Champagne" until the creation of the Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée in 1936.

However, the conveniences of his aristocratic origins did not allow him to indulge in a commercial activity, which is why he associated himself in 1829 with Joseph Bollinger (known as Jacques Joseph Bollinger) and Paul Renaudin. He created a... See more ...

Description Bollinger PN AYC 18.

Fourth edition of Bollinger PN, cuvée PN AYC18 magnifies Pinot Noir exclusively from the village of Aÿ.  

Each edition gives free expression to a main cru and a base year meticulously selected by Bollinger. 

This 100% Pinot Noir blends the richness of the Aÿ terroir with the exceptionality of a wine made partly from 2018.  

Made largely with 2018 magnums of Réserve, the chalk, characteristic of the Aÿ terroir plays a regulating role in the ripening of the fruit. A beautiful gesture of nature, which gives life to its emblematic character: uprightness, length and amplitude. 

The year 2018 was marked in Champagne by an early and abundant harvest. Despite high temperatures, the chalk allowed the grapes to retain their concentration, natural ripeness and sustained acidity essential to making a quality Champagne.gourmet notes of honey, fruit paste, quince and candied citrus emerge on the first nose. 

After aeration, aromas of almond paste and blood orange round out this sweetly spiced nose endowed with a refreshing menthol note. 

The palate is deep, subtle and rich, offering fine amplitude and a candied citrus finish that enhances the freshness of this wine.

This Champagne is complex, straightforward and beautifully fresh, and will go well with fish dishes such as sea bream or scallop ceviche, or simply be enjoyed as an aperitif.
