This is one of the last remaining independent Champagne houses which has been family managed since 1889. The house apparently holds Cru Classe wines in Magnum bottles to age for ten to fifteen years which are blended into the Special Cuvée. Champagne Bollinger is featured in almost every Bond movie since Live And Let Die in 1973.
Gérard Perse became the new owner of Chateau Pavie in 1998. From this day on, he has transformed the wines on his estate in less than 20yrs to “ Premier Grand Cru Classé A”. He also has under his belt, Pavie Decesse, Bellvue Mondotte, Espirit de Pavie and Clos Lunells. A true genius of his trade!!
A beautifully gold straw yellow hue, fine bubbles, a bouquet of floral & fruity aromas, ripe & thirst – quenching on the palate, with a superb taste of brioche. Delicate toasty aroma. Creamy, beautifully balanced with a dry finish. A Champagne that has always been surrounded by Politicians & Royalty.
A very smooth & intense wine with waves of Atlantic freshness typical of vintages from the high Westerly provinces of La Rioja. Elegant, delicate, with a good body that persists through the mouth. The fruit is very complex and spicy, finishing with an explosion of freshness.
A deep gold colour with amber highlights. An intense, fruity bouquet the powerful aroma of tropical fruits mango, guava &nectarine. A generous palate combining roundness and freshness. Captivating sweetness of caramel and the refreshing acidity of grapefruit and ginger notes. Exclusive champagne served over ice.
Although it is still young, this vintage of Cristal promises great things. There’s an impressive balance between ripe fruit and crisp acidity, rich and food friendly, but also a fine apéritif. Apricot and grapefruit flavors are round and rich, but with considerable minerality as well.
