In 2013, the Champagne region faced unique weather conditions with a long winter punctuated by snow and frost. Despite these turbulent circumstances, Champagne Bollinger shaped the wine from this particularly late harvest into a vintage, and by doing so, also made a limited edition : B13, which stands for Bollinger 2013.
It’s thanks to the ethical farming practices that Bollinger employs in the vineyard that the Champagne House constantly benefits from undeniably high-quality grapes, no matter how difficult certain years can be.
This vintage Blanc de Noirs champagne embodies the excellence of the Bollinger vineyards on the Montage de Reims, and is a tribute to Bollinger’s oenological and environmental values.
The 100% recyclable case, made of mostly recycled materials, reflects the multiple qualities of this limited edition to express the uniqueness of both the vintage’s signature and Bollinger’s vision.
’Pre-release! A Blanc de Noirs from 5 villages where half consists of equal shares of Aÿ and Verzenay. As you know, Verzenay and Aÿ are the dominant villages in Bollinger's vintage champagnes. (…). Verzenay is often the chalky and mineral-packed backbone of Bollinger's vintage construction and Aÿ yield the embraced generous rich Pinot Noir that gives Bollinger's wines such muscle strength. Here, the balance of the two is accompanied by red fruits and spices from the three other villages that is playing the second violin in this symphony. Because it is precisely the symphonic harmony that impresses most when the wine in large parts is youthfully fruity and anything but finished. Notes of strawberries, pineapple, banana and pear will over time be blown off for more nutty and powdery smoke dominated notes with great depth and wonderful seriousness. Personally, I will wait as long as I can before I open my own bottles to get the increasing depth of grilled hazelnut aroma that only storage can provide.’ 95pts Richard Juhlin
