Bollinger B13 Blanc de Noirs Champagne 2013

VINTAGE: 2013
WINERY:Bollinger
COUNTRY: France
REGION:Champagne
BODY:Light medium

B13, Bollinger 2013, is a limited-edition Blanc de Noirs: just 5 Crus were chosen for the cuvée of which 92% Grand Cru & 8% Premiers Cru. A colour with golden undertones. Rich and complex. Opening with notes of ripe fruits, fruit jellies and almond paste leading to aromas of mirabelle plum and vine peach. Generosity and elegant fruit with flavours of pear, fresh almonds and tarte Tatin are marked by the chiselled, mineral expression of Pinot Noir bringing citrus and candied lemon notes. Velvety persistence with a saline hint on the finish.

"On this vintage with a prolonged growing season, Bollinger played the cool card, choosing to go with a high proportion of Verzenay fruit (51%). The combination of cool vintage and cool terroir is truly attractive for a blanc de noirs. Already the nose has lovely zingy fruitiness to it, lemon custard, perfectly ripe peaches and elegant spicy and chalky tones. The ensemble comes across as elegant, super juicy and purely fruity. My favourite of Bollinger limited editions so far!" Essi Avellan , MW
