Bollinger PN VZ15

For the first time in 12 years, Bollinger have launched a new wine, a Blanc de Noirs made exclusively from Pinot Noir. It is a Non-Vintage Champagne with the base vintage of 2015 from the Verzenay Grand Cru plus Reserve wines going back to 2009. It is another example of the multi-vintage blend, seen in Krug Grande Cuvee, Penfolds G3 and Vega Sicilia. Like these wines it has aspirations to greatness – but does the wine stack up?

Absolutely – the Bollinger PN VZ15 is an exciting addition to the Bollinger collection. It’s five year old base wines gives a Champagne full of youthful vitality – bright strawberry, praline, spice, and even floral fruits with laser focus. The palate is then dry and exuberant – its layers of fruit wrapped up in a cloak of high yet fine acidity. It is also full-bodied and textural combining a silky texture with power and finesse. The good news is that this is only the first vintage in what will surely become a key part of the Bollinger range.
