The creation of this non-vintage Rosé was a dream of the House for over six years. Bronze tones combined with the intense depth of a great red wine. Bright, fresh, red berry aromas: hints of red currant, cherry and wild strawberry with a slight spicy touch.

On the palate; bubbles as fine as velvet; a subtle combination of structure, length and vivacity, with a tannic finish due to the adjunction of red wine; seductive hints of strawberry and red fruit are perfectly contrasted with rich toasty elements but retaining a dry acidity in the mouth.

The lively, joyous sparkle of the fruit is always contained by the wine's precise structure, which gains in fullness and climaxes with mellow notes that stay on the palate and resound in the memory for a long time.

In the meticulous House style, Bollinger Rosé is modelled on the Special Cuveé blend, combining the fruits of previous harvests plus the addition of reserve wines from their cellars in Ay. The final

component, which provides colour and delicate aromas of ripe red fruits, is a proportion of still red wine coming exclusively from Bollinger's Grand Cru Vineyards in the Cote d'Ay and Verzenay.

This non-vintage interpretation is true to its distinctive house style and heritage, which gives reason to believe it would have been granted Mme Bollinger's approval.

Madame Bollinger famously quoted: “I drink it when I'm happy and when I'm sad. Sometimes I drink it when I'm alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I'm not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise I never touch it - unless I'm thirsty."

In 1829, Champagne Bollinger introduced an instantly recognizable, dry, toasty style that connoisseurs around the globe have coveted ever since. Six generations of the Bollinger family have maintained that trademark style, and Bollinger is one of the rare Grande Marque houses to be owned, controlled and managed by the same family since it was founded.

With 399 acres of vineyards situated in the best Grands Crus and Premiers Crus villages, Bollinger relies on its own estate for nearly two-thirds of its grape requirements, including the Pinot Noir from La Côte Aux Enfants in the heart of Ay. It is this that gives its Champagne its distinctive roundness and elegance, Bollinger is one of a select few houses that can control the quality of its grape supply so carefully.

Bollinger is renowned for its stringent quality standards. It adheres to traditional methods, including individual vinification of each marc and cru, barrel fermentation (it is the last Champagne house to employ a full-time cooper) and extra-aging on the lees prior to disgorgement.

Cellar Master Gilles Descôtes is the grandson of a Champagne grower who has been amongst the vines from an early age. He is custodian of the five labyrinthine kilometres of cellars that run under Ay, permeated by the scent of fermented fruit, old wood and earth. These house the treasured Bollinger wines, including a matchless collection of over 700,000 magnums of reserve wines.
