Bollinger Champagne ‘Grande Annee’ Rosé 2005

Sparkling Wine from France - Champagne
Review Date : 04-Jul-2017
Pale peach colour, a hint of orange, light bead persistence. This is rounded, but possesses a multi-layered core of ripe, savoury, yellow stonefruits with red florals and red berry suggestions, along with complex yeasty autolysis, along with aldehyde savouriness. More contained, but the complexity is the feature. The palate is rich with lush and savoury flavours of yellow stonefruits, faded roses and red fruits. This has concentration, texture and depth. Though less refreshing, this has layers and detailed complexing flavours. The aldehydes are more prominent, as is a touch of emergent bottle age. Under it all, the acidity gives zip and energy. A blend of 72% Pinot Noir and 28% Chardonnay from 13 crus, 95% grand cru and 5% premier cru, including 5% Coteaux aux Enfants’ red wine, 7 g/L dosage. Disgorged May 2015. 19.0-/20 Jul 2017 RRP $330.00
