Bollinger B13 Vintage Champagne 75cl

Rating:
100% of 100

B13 Vintage Champagne by Bollinger is a unique signature of the 2013 vintage by Bollinger - a crystalline wine to express the oenological and environmental values held by Champagne Bollinger.

This Champagne is a reflection of a unique year with singular weather conditions, and the embodiment of the House’s oenological and environmental values. Champagne Bollinger has shaped the wine from this particularly late harvest into a vintage, and by doing so, also made a limited edition - B13, which stands for Bollinger 2013.

B13, Bollinger 2013, is a limited-edition Blanc de Noirs: just 5 Crus were chosen for the cuvée of which 92% Grand Cru & 8% Premiers Cru.

In 2013, the Champagne region faced unique weather conditions - a long winter punctuated by snow and frost - was one of the latest harvest’s since 1988. However despite these turbulent conditions, this vintage champagne embodies the excellence of the Bollinger vineyards on the Montagne de Reims and the resulting wine is delightful.

Bollinger are famed for their Pinot Noir so there is little surprise that its signature rich, open style shines through. The wonderful smoky, nutty and caramel tones imparted by Bollinger’s distinct ageing are already present and the reserve wines, aged for up to 7 years in magnum, add to its exceptional aromatic intensity.

“On this vintage with a prolonged growing season, Bollinger played the cool card, choosing to go with a high proportion of Verzenay fruit (51%). The combination of cool vintage and cool terroir is truly attractive for a blanc de noirs. Already the nose has lovely zingy fruitiness to it, lemon custard, perfectly ripe peaches and elegant spicy and chalky tones. The ensemble comes across as elegant, super juicy and purely fruity. My favourite of Bollinger limited editions so far! ” MW EssiAvellan.com July 2021
Grape: Pinot Noir
Blend 100% Pinot Noir. Just five crus of which 92% Grands Crus and 8% Premiers Crus.
A colour with golden undertones. Rich and complex. Opening with notes of ripe fruits, fruit jellies and almond paste leading to aromas of mirabelle plum and vine peach. Generosity and elegant fruit with flavours of pear, fresh almonds and tarte Tatin are marked by the chiselled, mineral expression of Pinot Noir bringing citrus and candied lemon notes. Velvety persistence with a saline hint on the finish.

To fully appreciate its unique style and aromas, B13 is best served between 8 and 10°C. You can enjoy B13 now or leave it in the cellar to develop further.
