Bollinger, B13 Blanc de Noirs 2013

RRP £99.90

For this vintage, with its prolonged growing season, Bollinger played the cool card, choosing to go with a high proportion of Verzenay fruit (51%). The combination of a cool vintage and cool terroir is truly attractive for a blanc de noirs. Already the nose has a lovely zingy fruitiness to it: lemon custard, perfectly ripe peaches and elegant spicy and chalky tones. The ensemble comes across as elegant, super-juicy and purely fruity. The best of the Bollinger limited editions so far.
