The NV Brut Rose is a richly-textured, bold Champagne loaded with generous ripe fruit. The wine shows excellent up-front intensity and weight, although it could be a little more refined in its personality. This medium-bodied Champagne will make a delicious aperitif but it also has enough stuffing to pair with a wide variety of foods. The Rose is 62% Pinot Noir, 24% Chardonnay and 14% Meunier (roughly the same blend as the Special Cuvee), with the addition of 5% still Pinot juice (2004) that saw three weeks of maceration on the skins. The dosage is 9-10 grams. The high percentage of red grapes contributes to this wine's big personality. This is the first bottling of Bollinger's Rose. The estate is certainly off to a very strong start with this effort. This is Lot: 819801, disgorged around mid-April, 2008.

There's a briny, mineral-tinged waft of seashore adding complexity to flavors of black cherry, grilled plum, pastry, graphite and almond cream in this vibrant roseÌ�, which offers mouthwatering acidity and finely detailed texture.

Long a dream of Bollinger, this is the 1st release of a NV rose (and the first new Bollinger release in 30 years.) Majority Pinot Noir with Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. A seductive strawberries and cream with a vibrant note of cherry and raspberry. Fine beading and a clean, fresh mouth that reminisces the cherry with a lovely biscuit and toasty aspect. Rounded texture and long finish. Finishes crisp and refreshing with a white cranberry and Queen Anne cherry lashing. Delightful!

Great wine, first release of the rose from the house. Hints of a tart strawberry and nice medium body.
