Pinot Noir & Bollinger Champagne; What a duo!

Tom Hyland recently wrote in Forbes an article, titled ”Blanc de Noirs – A Different Shade of Champagne” features Champagne Bollinger’s PN TX17, noting “Beautifully made, this is a refined Blanc de Noirs meant for foods such as duck breast, roast chicken or aged gruyere.” He mentions that the Blanc de Noirs style has become an important category, especially for lovers of more full bodied Champagnes.  The areas west of Epernay and Reims, where Bollinger is found, is called the Vallée de Marne, and is known for Blanc de Noirs. z Tom’s commentary on Bollinger’s PN TX17 is glowing; “100% Pinot Noir, primarily from the village of Tauxìeres; 50% of the fruit is from 2017; disgorged in February 2022. Medium deep yellow; aromas of apricot, stewed apples, biscuit, toast and a note of honey. Medium-full, there is excellent ripeness, good acidity, wonderful complexity, very good persistence and impressive varietal character.”
