Bollinger PN VZ16 is the second edition in a new collection of Champagnes made solely from the red Pinot Noir grape. Every year Bollinger releases a new addition to the collection, each exploring the House’s various terroirs in a different way. As Bollinger are famed for their Pinot Noir, the aim of this new collection is to prolong the heritage and legendary style for which they are renowned.
PN VZ16 is made mainly from fruit grown in Grand Cru vineyards (aka the very best) in the village of Verzenay with a little fruit from Avenay and Tauxieres. It is delicately golden in colour and opens with aromas of apple, rhubarb, quince and plum with richer notes of hazelnut. The signature rich Bollinger style shines through with brioche, stewed fruit, nutty and caramel tones with exotic fruit and a wonderful creamy effervesence.
Bollinger recommend pairing with tomato tartlet, risotto or Langres cheese… but it’ll be fabulous enjoyed alone for a special occasion. To fully appreciate its unique style and aromas serve between 8-10c. Enjoy now or leave for a few years to develop further.
