To the eye: Its delicate colour and golden reflections are a sign of the wine's maturity and Bollinger's wine-making methods. To the nose: Great complexity; honey, gingerbread and cinnamon aromas; subtle notes of dried fruits (hazelnut) and dried flowers (lime blossom). To the palate: A mature, supple and full wine with a long finish. Pastry, candied orange and ripe fruit flavours with subtle notes of woodland and vanilla A creamy effervescence; the subtle acidity of the finish adds freshness.

Wine Spectator"Highly Recommended" A powerful, structured and graceful 2005, showing deft integration of the rich, chalky underpinning, firm acidity and expansive flavors of crushed black currant, spring blossom, toasted almond, crystallized honey and preserved lemon. Offers a fine, raw silk-like mousse and a long, spiced finish. Disgorged February 2015. Drink now through 2030. 2,250 cases imported.
