Professional Reviews For This Wine


Richard Juhlin | Rating: 93

Champagne's greatest rarity is made of grapes from ungrafted pre-phylloxera stocks in Aÿ and Bouzy. No other Champagne can display such richness. The '86 may not be one of the greatest vintages, but here too there is an intractable power that lifts it over its competitors. The color is always dark, with elements of mahogany and the nose is astonishingly broad, with layers of fruit and vegetable aromas. The wine is compact, with a strict finish. Store!

Bollinger has a classic, full-bodied style that reflects its Pinot-dominated cuv�es. This house is known for its muscular champagnes and R.D. cuv�es, which are kept for approximately ten years on their yeast lees.

Wine Varietal: Champagne Blend


Three major varieties are used in a Champagne Blend: Chardonnay, which provides a smooth, creamy texture and Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, which provide depth and backbone. Most Champagne is non-vintage (NV), produced with grapes from several different vintages. Vintage Champagnes are made in exceptional years and must contain 80% grapes from that year. Champagne, France is the only region permitted to put "Champagne" on the label.

Blanc de Blancs: Meaning "white of white," blanc de blancs Champagne is 100% Chardonnay.

Blanc de Noirs: Meaning "white of red," is 100% Pinot Noir or a Pinot Noir/Pinot Meunier blend.

Rose Champagne: A small amount of still red wine is added during the blending process, creating a rose hue.
