Few brand names evoke the extraordinary indulgence of truly premium Champagne quite like Bollinger does. These folks really know what they’re doing. After all, they’ve been doing it since 1829. The Bollinger Rosé is a blend of 62% Pinot Noir, 24% Chardonnay and 14% Pinot Meunier from 85% Grand or Premier Cru vineyards – that’s fancy French for the best of the best of vineyards and grapes. The Bollinger Rosé is an exceptionally polished Champagne, an aromatic, perfectly balanced wine of great complexity and sophistication.
The Bollinger Rosé entices with a beautiful salmon pink colour, a velvet mousse and fresh, pure redcurrant, cherry and strawberry aromas. The palate is rich and refined, perfectly combining power with freshness. It has a silky texture, juicy wild berry flavours, a touch of creaminess and a lasting fresh berry finish. There are few occasions in life when us everyday folk get to pop the cork on a bottle like this. If you’re going down on one knee this Valentine’s Day and still have some dosh left over after leaving the ring shop, this is the bubbly to seal the deal with. Bollinger Rosé, packaged in a gorgeous gift box, is available nationally for approximately R1230.
