Gold Medal - New Zealand International Wine Show 2016
60% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay, 15% Pinot Meunier
Pale golden in colour with yeasty aromas on the nose. Very dry but with toasty flavours in the mouth. Round and richly flavoured, full bodied and mature, with perfect balance between firmness and freshness, length equal to its richness, and with a persistent fine bead. In champagne terms, this is the definitive "masculine" style. The high percentage of pinot noir ensures a full-bodied, rich style and the addition of 5 to 10% reserve wines (each aged up to fifteen years) give complexity and depth. Yeast on the nose, dry and toasty in the mouth, with great length and perfect balance.
Top 10 & 5 Stars Cuisine Over $100 Champagne Tasting, October 2016 (NV)
"Bollinger keeps pretty quiet about any changes to its wines, but the non-vintage Brut has been subtly transformed in recent years, giving away a little of its rather old-fashioned oxidative style in favour of a more vibrant model.That said, this wine will still please traditionalists with its winning combination of apple, nut brittle, mealy and meaty complexities, and rich, toasty depth. It’s still concentrated and opulent, but it is fresher than it used to be and all the more satisfying as a result."
