Special Cuvee Champagne, Bollinger, Brut, France

£49.00

The story began with Athanase de Villermont, the youngest son of a noble family with a brilliant destiny. A great soldier who shone during the American War of Independence, he inherited an extensive estate from his family in the Aÿ area. He immediately foresaw the extraordinary potential of the wines of Champagne, but as an aristocrat he was forbidden to become involved in trade. He then met Joseph Bollinger, a widely travelled German who had left his country of birth to learn about the Champagne wine trade, and Paul Renaudin, a local man who was fascinated by the world of wine. The firm of Renaudin-Bollinger & Cie was founded on 6th February 1829. Joseph took care of sales and Paul of the cellar. Athanase had founded a champagne House that was to endure through the centuries.

Tasting Note

The Bollinger style: depth and subtlety. A majority of reserve wines, part of which have been aged in magnums for 5 to 15 years. A subtle combination of structure, length and vivacity ; bubbles like velvet ; pear, brioche and spicy aromas, notes of fresh walnut.

Food Matching
Any fish, especially sushi and sashimi. Seafood: shrimp, prawn, crayfish, grilled lobster. Poultry and white meat. Parmesan, good cured ham… or just in a glass as the perfect timeless aperitif
