Champagne Bollinger was established in 1829 by Jacques Bollinger and to this day is still family owned. Benefitting from ownership of 166 hectares of vineyards in the finest Premier and Grand Champagne, Bollinger wines are defined as much by the vines the grapes come from, as by the blending process, or the House’s century old barrels in which the wines mature. Bollinger is a true Champagne icon and it’s clear to see why.

La Côte aux Enfants is a great red wine from the legendary Aÿ plot: a pure Pinot Noir, the combination of an exceptional plot and a highly skilled Burgundy winemaking method which is very rare in the Champagne region. The region originally owed its fame to its red wines. Favourites of King Henri IV, the Pinot Noirs from the town of Aÿ were the most popular wines of the French court. La Côte aux Enfants comes from a steep, small 70 acre plot just outside Aÿ which Jacques Bollinger himself reconstituted patiently, at the beginning of the 20th century, from over 50 differently owned plots. It is exclusively planted with Pinot Noir and is a designated Grand Cru site. Since 2009, all vines grown on that site are organically farmed and green harvests reduce the yield to 8,500kgs per hectare.

Tasting Note:
The nose delivers notes of redcurrant and blackcurrant; aromas of leather and dried figs once aerated. On the palate elegant aromas of cherries in eau de vie and blackcurrant, accompanied by delicate notes of pepper and clove. Cocoa and liquorice on the finish.
