ABOUT THE WINE 
With roots in the Champagne region stretching back to the 16th Century the Bollinger House have been creating prestigious champagnes since 1829. The expansion of both the physical estate and with it their international reputation saw the House awarded a Royal Warrant from Queen Victoria in 1884. Bollinger lets it’s wines mature for twice as long as the appellation requirement – as they themselves say ‘this is not out of vanity, but because a great wine needs the luxury of time to develop its full character’. Pinot Noir is the backbone of the Bollinger style and the grape variety with which it forged its reputation. The PN Cuvée aims to add further to this astonishing heritage; every year will see a new addition to the PN Collection, each exploring the various terroirs of the Bollinger estate (2016  being that of Verzenay) in a different way.

TASTING NOTES
The golden hue of the champagne itself leads to a first impression that blends the fruity notes of apple, rhubarb, quince and Mirabelle plum with warm hazelnut aromas. On the palate the wonderful creamy effervescence of the style marries exotic flavours such as spiced, stewed fruit and brioche and leads to a mouth-wateringly saline finish.

FOOD PAIRING
Cherry tomato Tarte Tartin, braised Champagne lentil, chestnut and pumpkin buttered sweetbread, sage & sourdough
