Champagne Bollinger La Côte aux Enfants 2014 (91 JD)

“All Pinot Noir and bottled as a dry, still wine, the 2014 La Cote Aux Enfants comes from a steep single vineyard just outside of the village of Aÿ and spent eight months in small barrels before bottling. Offering a stunning bouquet of ripe cherry and strawberry fruits, it has classic Burgundian spice and dried flower aromatics, medium-bodied richness, moderate tannins, and a rounded, supple texture that offers nicely integrated acidity. It picks up more sappy, floral notes with time in the glass and is just an ethereal, elegant, complex Coteaux Champenois that will benefit from a year or two of bottle age and keep for a decade.”

    Coteaux Champenois

    A stunning and extremely rare, still red wine produced only for the greatest vintages. This wine harmoniously combines 100% Pinot Noir Grand Cru fruit from an exceptional vineyard with traditional Burgundian style winemaking. Historically, Pinot Noirs from Aÿ were the most popular wines of the French court, specifically a favorite of King Henri IV, and La Côte aux Enfants comes from a steep plot just outside of the village. This wine is the purest expression of Pinot Noir, offering a fine, delicate texture in the mouth, and a tautness giving it a beautifully long finish.
