Fresh as a rosé, balanced as a Bollinger Production Blend: 62% Pinot Noir, 24% Chardonnay, 14% Meunier. Only 5 to 6% red wine added due to its power. Over 85% Grands and Premiers crus. Exclusive use of the cuvée. Maturation: Cellar aged for more than twice the time required by the appellation. Dosage: Moderate, 7 to 8 grams per liter. Red wine as an agent of style. Addition of only 5% red wine from the vineyards of Verzenay and Aÿ. Sensations To the eye: A bright rosé with subtle golden hues. To the nose: The nobility of red berries: hints of red currant, cherry and wild strawberry; a spicy touch, not unlike Special Cuvée. On the palate: A subtle combination of structure, length and vivacity, with a tannic finish due to the adjunction of red wine; bubbles as fine as velvet; flavours of wild berries. Food pairings Crayfish, lobster, one-side cooked salmon. Japanese cuisine or not-so-spicy Asian cuisine. Fruit based dessert: fruit soup, strawberry tart, raspberries.
