Market Watch included the launch of Champagne Bollinger PN VZ15 in its September 2020 New Products feature. The write up explains that it is made from “100% Pinot Noir grapes and kicks off a new series of wines chowcasing various crus across Champagne. The first edition is comprised of 50% Pinot Noir from the Verzenay cru harvested in 2015.” The piece further explains the makeup of the rest of the blend and the usage of reserve wines dating back to the 2009 vintage.
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.
