Good old Bollinger pioneered giving useful information on the back label. This wine, made from the produce of 16 Premier and especially Grand Cru villages is intense and savoury.

An absolutely magnificent nose of melted butter on thick white toast with beguiling undertones of tropical fruits. (I know it sounds a tad romantic but it really does!) As complex on the palate, with a weight and breath that's totally compelling. Rich, round and profound this is truly one of the most exciting champagnes I've drunk. Gorgeous now but will grow and blossom beautifully over the next decade.

This enticing blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay has been fermented in oak and aged under natural cork until disgorgement in July of 2010, then allowed a respectable repose before its release. The nose is forthright and powerful, with orchard fruit and hints of honey evidenced, together with sherbet and grilled almond, all amazingly pure and precise. Intimations cede to certainties on the palate as encyclopaedic flavours defer to the reputations of vintage and House alike, with nutty, creamy notes, an elegant fruit scherzo with fine balancing acidity, and an authoritative finish, all perfectly integrated and wonderfully fresh.
