Bollinger B13 Vintage Champagne 75cl
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.
