The colour of Deep gold, reminiscent of a bright autumn morning. Very intense on the nose, characteristic of mature vintages. Quince, honey, dried apricots and candied fruits flavours. Tertiary aromas of grilled, toasted bread.  On the palate a round, creamy mouthfeel with an effervescence that melts into the wine. A saline, mineral finish. Incredible length with exceptional richness and maturity.

 

Vieilles Vignes Françaises 2005 can be paired with the finest dishes but can also help create a special occasion on its own; wine connoisseurs will share it thoughtfully, enjoying the opportunity to try its rare unmatched flavours.  To fully appreciate its unique style, bouquet and aromas, it is best to serve Vieilles Vignes Françaises 2005 between 8 and 10°C.

You can enjoy Vieilles Vignes Françaises 2005 right away, or choose to age it in your cellar.

A taste of Champagne in bygone days: a very small production from miraculously preserved and un-grafted vines, grown the traditional way.

 

100% Pinot Noir
At Bollinger, only the highest quality harvests become a vintage: in 2005, the Vieilles Vignes Françaises parcels were harvested on 22 September and produced an exceptional Pinot Noir.  The Wine was Cellar aged for more than twice the time required by the Appellation.

Dosage: 0g/l. No added sugar. The elegant maturity of the 2005 vintage is revealed in its purest expression.
