The maison was founded in 1829 by Athanase Louis Emmanuel Count of Villermont in collaboration with the German Joseph Bollinger and Paul Ranaudin. It was the German himself, in the years to come, who became the symbol 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%
It is produced according to the so-called champenoise method or classic method, a method in which the wine substantially undergoes two different fermentations: the first, the alcoholic one (which it shares with the rest of the wines) takes place in fermentation vats; the second instead takes place directly in the bottle and ensures that during this second procedure, thanks to particular yeasts, the wine also develops carbon dioxide (which will then give life to the famous bubbles once uncorked).
Straw yellow with golden reflections. Nose of white fruit, yeasts and bread crust, with elderberry and other floral and spicy notes. Persistent, very drinkable on the palate.
Perfect as an “important” aperitif or with refined dishes.
