The maison was founded in 1829 by Athanase Louis Emmanuel Count of Villermont in partnership with the German Joseph Bollinger and Paul Ranaudin. It was the German himself, in the years to come, who became the symbolic man of the company that still bears his name today. Bollinger has always focused on the quality of the product, obviously helped by the favorable position in which his vineyards are located, even arriving in 1884 to receive the Royal Warrant of the English Court. To date, the company has about 160 hectares which extend mainly in the Montagne de Reims and Ay, half classified as Grand Crus and the rest as Premier Crus.
Pinot Noir 100%
After harvesting the grapes during the harvest, they are subjected to red vinification with the traditional technique of maceration on the skins. Subsequently, the wine is left to mature in French oak barrels for about 8 months before being bottled.
The wine shows an intense ruby red hue and is distinguished by a refined and delicate bouquet, enriched by floral notes, fruit aromas, spicy nuances and hints of licorice root. In the mouth, it is of medium consistency, characterized by thin tannins and a lively sip. The pleasant aromatic nuances develop into a long and remarkably fresh finish.
Ideal for celebrations and important moments to share with loved ones, this product is perfect to be combined with rich dishes such as foie gras, or with intensely flavored meat or fish dishes. However, it must be considered whether it is really necessary to combine something with such a high quality product such as champagne, which can also be enjoyed on its own and represents an excellent choice for a moment of meditation in every sense.
