Bollinger B13 Vintage Champagne

In 2013, the Champagne region faced unique weather conditions: a long winter punctuated by snow and frost, a wet and hesitant spring, then a very hot summer with violent thunderstorms.

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 – minimal agricultural inputs, controlled yields, precise management of the grape’s maturity throughout the course of harvesting – that the Champagne House constantly benefits from undeniably high-quality grapes, no matter how difficult certain years can be. Today, B13 is a new example of this. This vintage Blanc de Noirs champagne embodies the excellence of the Bollinger vineyards on the Montagne de Reims, and is a tribute to Bollinger’s oenological and environmental values.

Characterised by freshness, the 2013 vintage has a unique profile, expressed by both fruity aromas – unconventional notes of citrus and yellow fruits – and gourmet ones – with flavours of tarte tatin and fresh almond. Tension and minerality characterise this edition. A glistening, precise wine.

Champagne Collard Picard Archives Vintage 2012

Deriving from the Cœurs de Cuvée from the 2012 harvest of the terroirs of the Côte des Blanc (Grand Cru) and the Vallée de la Marne, this cuvée is vinified and matured in oak barrels for 18 months, without malolactic fermentation or filtration, after the fashion of our ancestors. In the Champagne tradition of centuries past, a cork stopper with staple is put in place upon bottling, and will be kept throughout the entire aging on racks, enabling micro-oxygenation of the wine, to help guarantee long conservation, This cuvée d’exception can be consumed right now, but can also be aged for many more years in the calm and darkness of a temperature cellar. It will satisfay the greatest champagne aficionados with its mix of finesse and powerfull flavours.

Moet & Chandon Grand Vintage 2013

A light golden hue with fine, persistent bubbles. The maturity of this champagne is immediately apparent, with autumnal notes of roasted chestnuts, toasted buckwheat, rich nuts, honey and nougat. White fruit is revealed next, reminiscent of a beautifully ripe apple or pear. Aromas of iodine, dried flowers and pine sap complete the bouquet. The palate is direct and energetic, supported by a lively yet delicate acidity and a finely chiselled structure, and enveloped by a refined, grainy texture. The wine finishes with a pleasantly bitter hint of white grapefruit.

Roederer Cristal Brut Vintage

Such attractive, fresh, floral aromas here with fine bread, hints of white almonds and a lemon edge. White cherries and strong, chalky minerals, too. The palate has a very composed feel. Seamless and quite silky texture with effortless length and flow. Very fluid and composed. Very late, warming almond flavors. This is very long and smooth with a velvety finish. Super long pinot weight. Resolved and drinkable, but will age so well. JS

Taittinger Artists Collection ‘Salgado’ 2008

The Taittinger Collection was the brainchild of Claude Taittinger, who in 1983 approached his first artist, Hungarian Victor Vasarely, with a view to commission him to make a distinctive look for a small number of 1978 vintage bottles.

Subsequent editions have featured the work of world famous artists such as the French surrealist André Masson and American pop artist Robert Rauschenberg.

This is only the 14th edition of its Collection since 1983, with Brazilian photographer, Sebastião Salgado commissioned to produce a limited edition label for Taittinger’s Brut Millésimé 2008.

Salgado is the first Brazilian and photographic artist to have been selected for the task, choosing to feature an image of a leopard captured in the Barab River Valley in Damaraland, Namibia, in 2005. The bottle has been designed in black with white writing in keeping with Salgado’s black and white photography.

Taittinger Comtes Blanc De Blanc 2006

Citrus fruits and fragrant honeysuckle on the nose; then the coup de grace of a weightlessly elegant mouthfeel that is so Comtes, with richer fruits like apricot and white pear following on. Delicate aeration encourages a note of oak. Masterly winemaking in warm ’06.

Alc 12%

The 2006 brings back all the wonder of classic Comtes: the innocence of a joyful childhood, a free-as-air dash through endless blue daylight and a breathless plunge into an icy mountain rock pool. A wine of coiled energy, focus, precision and minerality that bores to the very core of the finest chalkfields of the Côte des Blancs.
Drink: 2015-2036
