Saturday, June 8th, is National Rosé Day in the U.S. and leading entertainment and lifestyle publication, Hollywood Life, is encouraging readers to get into the spirit by celebrating with some of their favorite pink drinks and Rosé bottles of wine. In the story, “National Rosé Day 2019: 35 Delectable Cocktails & Bottles of Rosé to Celebrate,” Champagne Bollinger Rosé NV is featured as the top luxury bottle recommendation. The writer notes that the wine is “made in limited quantities so if you get your hands on one of these, you’re already ahead of the game.” She elaborates by adding that it is an “an exceptional rosé that’s more fruit driven than savory. With notes of red apple, cherry, and wild strawberry, it’s a real stunner.” Read the full story HERE
In the same way that Special Cuvée stands apart from non-vintage Champagnes, Bollinger Rosé is an exception for Rosé Champagnes. What is more, it is a relative secret, as Bollinger did not release a non-vintage Rosé until 2008 and the quantity produced is quite limited. The wine begins as Special Cuvée and then Bollinger's specialty as the Pinot Noir producer in Champagne takes center stage, as the red fruits that join the conversation dance vibrantly, the finish has just a hint of perfectly ripe tannin, and the deep complexity of the wine shines through transparently.
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.
