    Not to be confused with the pricier Grand Annee rosé, this limited edition release – sourced entirely from the stellar 2006 vintage – is special. Aged on the cork and 100% barrel-fermented, it’s leesy and subtly oxidative, with toasty richness, yet also precise with linear minerality. Pinot Noir-driven, it showcases serious berry fruit, a hit of racier orange, and a luxuriously long finish. This powerful Champagne is ready to drink now, and will work beautifully with food.

    This super rich, all barrel fermented Champagne from Bollinger is usually sold as "La Grande Année" Rosé for $60 more a bottle. Since the team at Bollinger does not feel that this ripe 2006 will last a generation, they decided to sell it as regular vintage- a first for them. Since it was originally made as "La Grande Année" Rosé, this wine it has been aged all the time on the lees on a cork rather than a crown cap. This is a full, toasty, powerful dry style that will thrill fans of this house, at a price that is too good to miss!

    It was such a treat to try the '06 rose from Bollinger. Aged on cork, not crown cap, the aromatics fill the nose with gentle spice and saltine cracker. Tart raspberry and that nice toasted spice dance on the palate. And while the wine was barrel fermented for elegance, a soft note of sweet lemon keeps palate elongated and making you go back for more!

    When you’re on the market for a rich rosé, how can you go wrong with a barrel fermented gem from the decadent 2006 vintage? This one from Bollinger is superbly executed, with notes of roses and strawberries, and oxidative richness and toast from the barrel. Spectacular stuff.

    This superb Rose from Bollinger will not be arriving until this Fall but, I had the opportunity to preview it today, 8 August. It has a super interesting nose of bright strawberry, orange peel and Fino sherry. On the palate, follow-up strawberry, blood orange and almond flavors. Very dry, with fine acidity and very elegant balance. Very bright for a 2006 vintage. Not to highlight the price too much but, this one is exceptional at this level of pricing!
