Town & Country recommends Champagne Bollinger Rosé NV as one of the best pink champagnes to drink all year long. Writer Lauren Hubbard says there is no need to retire rosé when the weather drops after Labor Day, “especially when the soft, fruit forward flavor of rosés go so brilliantly with everything from summery small bites to wintery game meats.”
She continues describing Bollinger’s signature NV rosé as rich, “with flavors of red berries and hints of rose.” Continuing, she adds “this elegant non-vintage French bottle is just as good with dessert as it is a substitute for one.” Read the full story HERE
Champagne Bollinger Rosé NV
In the same way that Special Cuvée stands apart from non-vintage Champagnes, Bollinger Rosé is an exception for Rosé Champagnes. What is more, it is a relative secret, as Bollinger did not release a non-vintage Rosé until 2008 and the quantity produced is quite limited. The wine begins as Special Cuvée and then Bollinger’s specialty as the Pinot Noir producer in Champagne takes center stage, as the red fruits that join the conversation dance vibrantly, the finish has just a hint of perfectly repeat tannin, and the deep complexity of the wine shines through transparently.
Bollinger is one of the rare Grande Marques that’s still family owned. Known for its rich, elegant and polished style of Champagne, their outstanding wines are the result of rigorous attention to detail and incredibly labor-intensive practices that few houses are willing to undertake. Underscoring its excellence, Bollinger has remained British secret agent James Bond's Champagne of choice since 1973.
