This is Madame Bollinger's ultimate gift, the result of rare conditions: a blend between a great champagne and one of the very best red wines of the Champagne region, both from the same vintage.

To the eye: Salmon coloured with orange hues

To the nose: Red currant and almonds aromas followed by spicy and grilled notes. Flavours of great Burgundy Pinot Noirs.

To the palate: Surprisingly wine-like but also very lively. Aromas of cherries, or kirsch, and toasted bread.

68% Pinot Noir, 32% Chardonnay, 89% Grands crus, 11% Premiers Crus, 5% red Cote aux Enfants wine. At Bollinger, only very high quality harvests become vintage: vintage 2004 gives us beautifully wine-like champagne, with pleasant hints of a great Pinot Noir.
