Product Description


La Cote aux Enfants, 2012, Bollinger


Notes of liquorice, morello cherries and elderflower jam, developing towards hints of cocoa, on the nose. The fruitiness bursts forth, a rich mouth feel with a beautiful tannic structure; a final note of cherry and kirsch, on the palate. - VinQuinn

Tasting Notes

Critics Score: 16.5

Bollinger needed red wine for their rosé so this is a reprise after concentrating on making red wine for the rosé. From a vineyard in Aÿ. Low yields. Cold maceration for five days. This is now sold younger than before – after two to four years. They are now using some whole bunch. 5,000 bottles made. Proper, very deep crimson. Spicy and a bit harsh on the nose at the moment. But very beguiling on palate – a real curiosity. Proper red wine. Dry finish. Not gentle but exceptionally concentrated for a still red in Champagne. Lots of tannins – almost Méo-Camuzet style. 11.5%
