Arizona Foothills shares news with its readers that Champagne Bollinger has introduced a new addition to the permanent range, PN VZ15, for the first time in over a decade.
The piece explains, “the wine, PN, is a pure expression of Pinot Noir and was developed as an ongoing series to celebrate the grape that so prominently defines Bollinger’s style. Each release of PN will highlight the Pinot Noir grape from a different cru from the base year to bring its distinctive terroir and taste to light.”
The piece continues by sharing insight from General Manager Charles-Armand de Belenet, who said this wine was born from the idea to “create a little brother to Vieilles Vignes Françaises.” Read the full story HERE to learn more about the specific winemaking and tasting notes.Bollinger-Arizona-Foothills-9_11_20-PNVZ
PN, made entirely from Pinot Noir to underscore the very essence and DNA of the House style, is the first new cuvée added to Bollinger’s permanent range since rosé in 2008. Each release of PN, developed as a series to bring Bollinger’s unique vision of Pinot Noir to light, will showcase a different cru from the base year that highlights its distinctive terroir and taste. The first edition of the series, PN VZ15, explores the interpretation of Pinot Noir from Verzenay 2015 and features reserve wines dating back to 2009.
Bollinger is one of the rare Grande Marques that’s still family owned. Known for its rich, elegant and polished style of Champagne, their outstanding wines are the result of rigorous attention to detail and incredibly labor-intensive practices that few houses are willing to undertake. Underscoring its excellence, Bollinger has remained British secret agent James Bond's Champagne of choice since 1973.
