Bollinger has been part of the history of the Champagne region for more than 180 years.
Members of the family came from many different horizons, and over the decades they have patiently built up an impressive heritage, always devoted to the service of what has become one of the most emblematic Houses the Champagne region has ever known. Today the House remains resolutely independent. As it has gradually expanded throughout the world, it has become a major global brand name.
The Bollinger Style
The Bollinger style is inimitable and recognised as such by the great Champagne lovers, the fruit of rigorous methods and a respect for principles handed down from one generation to the next in a great tradition that has always valued experience above all. Yet Bollinger has never rested on its laurels, always asking questions, seeking new intuitions, eventually leading to some major innovations. These include the choice of technology, too, as long as they enable us to improve product safety, its regularity and its durability.
History – Bollinger Rosé
The Maison Bollinger also makes magnificent red wines, such as the legendary Côte aux Enfants, in Aÿ. Since Bollinger Rosé was created in 2008, the Poirier Saint-Pierre and Montboeuf plots, in Verzenay, are worked in the same style as The Côte aux Enfants plot to complete the production… because only great Wines make great champagnes.
From Bollinger – Our Advise
“With its intimate and unusual flavours, Bollinger Rosé can be served for afternoon tea, Bollinger-style. It is also perfect for a picnic on a summer afternoon, as a pre-dinner drink or served with a fruity and tart dessert. To fully appreciate its unique style, bouquet and aromas, Bollinger Rosé is best served between 10 and 12°c. You can enjoy Bollinger Rosé right away, or choose to age it in your cellar… for more than 8 years.”
