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.

Bollinger Special Cuvee – 007 James Bond Limited Edition

Disgorged in the second half of 2019, the latest release of Bollinger’s NV Brut Special Cuvée is based on the 2015 vintage, complemented by around 60% reserve wines. The wine is still quite tightly wound after its recent disgorgement, opening in the glass with notes of crisp yellow orchard fruit, freshly baked bread, clear honey and orange peel, with little sign of the nuttiness to come with bottle age. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, muscular and incipiently textural, with a deep core, ripe acids and a pinpoint mousse. This isn’t the most incisive vintage of Special Cuvée, but it’s powerful and vinous and will have fine gastronomic potential with a little bottle age.

Bruno Paillard Brut Premiere Cuvee

EYE: The golden straw colour reveals a high presence of chardonnay and the exclusive use of the first pressing. The fine bubbles are due to a strict selection of the best grapes, perfectly controlled temperature in the cellar and very long ageing.

NOSE: The primary aromas reveal the citrus fruits of Chardonnay: lime and grapefruit. Then the red fruits aromas of Pinot Noir appear: redcurrant, raspberry, morello cherries. When left to open up in the glass, the wine shows hints of dried fruits, sometimes exotic, from Pinot Meunier.

PALATE: Lively and vivacious, thanks to a low dosage, the aromas on the nose are echoed in the mouth. Primary flavours of citrus, almonds, and toasted bread, very soon joined by redcurrant jelly but also dark fruits like cherry, fig and blackberry.

Whilst the wine opens up in the glass, and gets warmer, it expresses light plum and pear flavours. The palate is full, quite long with a very clean finish.

Champagne Collard Picard Prestige Brut

An eight-vintage blend starting with 2008 and going to 2015, with 65% being reserve wine plus a touch of solera-aged wine. Fermentation is in 72-hl oak casks, and the wines are kept on the fine lees for 12–15 months. 50% Chardonnay mostly from grand cru vineyards (Le Mesnil sur Oger and Oger), 25% Pinot Noir and 25% Pinot Meunier from the right bank of the Marne Valley (between Épernay and Dormans). Quite a bit of evolution on the nose. Tense and well balanced with real creamy character. Love the tight bead. Really appetising and energetic. Refined. Nicely assembled. Bravo. No desperate hurry to drink this.

Deutz Brut Classic

The most “classical” of the Deutz cuvees is far from mundane. The three different champagne grapes are blended in equal and unchanging proportions, ensuring it shows perfect harmony. Its golden color scintillates in the glass, with a fine stream of bubbles rising gracefully to the surface. The first impressions on the nose are mellow and reminiscent of acacia flowers, confectionery, Reinette apples and brioche. The wine then gains in volume and its silky texture reveals a successful balance between the freshness of Chardonnay, t he fruitiness and structure of Pinot Noir and a touch of vinosity from the Pinot Meunier.

The finish has a pleasantly acidulous character that adds to the impression of finesse given by this romantic and well-balanced wine.
