MV Bollinger Brut Rose Ay Champagne$79.95 -- MV Bollinger Brut Rose Ay Champagne
Preceded by Madame Bollinger's La Grande Année Rosé, this non-vintage blend is the next addition to the Bollinger family. Crafted to reveal its own unique personality while steadfastly representing the family, the rich complexity with balanced acidity should come as no surprise to devotees.
The color is Pale copper. Aromas of strawberries, raspberries and toasty lees. A full-bodied and round flavor. The Brut Rosé is in the traditional Bollinger style with added notes of red berries.
"There's a briny, mineral-tinged waft of seashore adding complexity to flavors of black cherry, grilled plum, pastry, graphite and almond cream in this vibrant rose, which offers mouthwatering acidity and finely detailed texture. Drink now through 2020." – 93 Wine Spectator
"Pale, bright pink. Expressive aromas of fresh red berries, tangerine and toasty lees, with a suave floral nuance. Deeply pitched but quite energetic, offering pure strawberry and cherry preserve flavors underscored by zesty citrus and mineral notes. Becomes richer and smokier with air and finishes with excellent clarity, thrust and persistence. For such a powerful wine this Champagne is impressively lithe and incisive." – 92 Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar
"The NV Brut Rose is a gorgeous wine laced with berries, flowers and chalk, all of which are woven together in a fabric of unusual class. The NV naturally doesn't have the weight and gravitas of the 2002 Rose La Grande Annee tasted alongside it, but it nevertheless shows striking purity and class in a more accessible, fresh style. It is another terrific effort from Bollinger. The NV Brut Rose is 62% Pinot Noir (of which 6% is still Pinot), 24% Chardonnay and 14% Pinot Meunier. This is Lot L819801. Disgorged May 30, 2008. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2015." – 91 Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
"Beautifully pale in color, this is serious rosé. Its rich and dry character and its red cherry and raspberry flavors are tied together by the finest acidity. Like most Bollinger Champagnes, this needs food." – 91 Wine Enthusiast
"A clean, fragrant rose with a mouthfilling texture, this balances the warmth of its strawberry flavors with citrus pith notes of ruby red grapefruit. It’s smoky and tart enough to match spicy Asian food." – 90 Wine & Spirits
