Country: France Region: Champagne
Varietal: 60% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay, 15% Meunier. Over 85% Grands and Premiers crus.
Maturation: cellar-aged for more than twice the time required by the appellation.
Winery Tasting Notes: "Sourced exclusively from Grands crus from the Champagne region, the juices selected are taken from the "cuvée" retaining only the best of the grapes."
To the eye: BOLLINGER SPECTRE LIMITED EDITION has a deep golden colour, which demonstrates the wine's maturity as well as Bollinger's winemaking methods.
To the nose: the vintage boasts a refined complexity, the expression of the Grands crus' terroirs. White flowers, citrus fruit, delicately stewed pear with hints of vanilla, toasted aromas, hazelnut and breadcrumbs.
To the palate: the wine shows a good maturity yet remains quite brisk and lively. We move through candied fruit, mirabelle plum, quince paste and honey with a finish that reminds us of bitter orange."
