- Other Info:
- Although the family history can be traced back to 1650, Bollinger officially formed in 1829 when Athanase de Villermont, Paul Raudin and Jacques Bollinger decided to merge their business acumen, land and knowledge of winemaking. It did not take long for the company and its wines to become noticed and in July 1884 Bollinger was given the Royal Warrant by Queen Victoria. This Royal Warrant is still held to this day by Bollinger. The wines are dominated by the Pinot Noir grape, and are weighty and biscuity. Bollinger age their wines that little bit longer than most, so they always present delicious notes of freshly baked bread. Bollinger produce around 3 million bottles per year. A firm favourite of royalty, secret service agents, and those who appreciate the finer things in life.
The quintessence of the Bollinger style with an average of 60% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay in the blend. Bready, yeasty and toasty flavours from the Pinot Noir predominate here, making a rich, full bodied style of Champagne.
- 'One of the grandest of all the grandes marques and, of late, deservedly so for its big, beefy, yet toasted-brioche bounce.' - Jane MacQuitty, The Times, December 2017

- Food match:
Ham and cheese may not be two things that immediately spring to mind when deciding what to pair with a bottle of Bollinger. But thinly sliced Comte cheese, and even more thinly sliced cured ham are a great idea with this lovely Champagne.
