Bollinger PN VZ15 Champagne is Bollinger's unique vision of Pinot Noir presented in a stunning gift box. The House is renowned for their outstanding Pinot Noir grapes and so, unsurprisingly, this Champagne has a signature rich, intense and exceptional character that brilliantly exemplifies Bollinger's craft. The blend holds 80% base wines from 2015 and 20% from Bollinger's reserve wines from 2009 and 2010. 

This wine is the first of a series - Bollinger PN Collection - which intends to showcase crus from different base years with the intention to highlight individual vintage tastes. Each year will see a new interpretation of Pinot Noir and invite you to explore Bollinger's terroirs like never before. 

The PN VZ15 can be enjoyed immediately but will also benefit from cellar ageing to encourage further development.

"The presentation is brilliant and is reminiscent of the house's legendary blanc de noirs Bollinger ’Vieilles Vignes Françaises’…..
A Verzenay blanc de noirs with sprinkles of Aÿ, Bouzy and Tauxières, where 50% of the wine comes from 2015 with reserve wines on magnum dating from 2009. Verzenay and Aÿ are, as you know, the dominant villages in Bollinger's vintage wines. Verzenay is often the chalky and mineral-rich backbone of Bollinger's vintage build-up. The wine is vibrantly fresh, mineral-driven and extremely pure. There is a clarity and sharpness that is outstanding, where gunpowder notes and aroma of grilled meat develop as the glass warms up slightly. I love this wine as it is a perfect creation from one of the most important villages in the whole of Champagne dominated by the aforementioned minerality, but also with notes of violet and red grapefruit so typical of Verzenay of the highest class. On aeration the scent develops more and more notes of pears, figs and freshly baked baguette and the taste develops towards peach and apricot jam. Personally, though, I will wait as long as I can before opening my own bottles to get the increasing depth of caramel and grilled hazelnut flavour that only time in the cellar can provide." - Awarded 95 Points, Richard Juhlin

"Bright and vibrant on the palate, the PN VZ 15 captures all of the Pinot richness that is such a Bollinger signature but with the freshness and verve that make Pinots from Verzenay so distinctive. Rich red fruit, mint, dried flower and spice notes play off bright acids and veins of saline-drenched minerals in a display of aromas, flavors and textures that dazzle all the senses. Think of it as a baby VVF, but with the tension of Verzenay. The blend is approximately 50% Verzenay and 50% Aÿ, Bouzy and Louvois, done about half in steel and half in oak. This release is based on the 2015 vintage (50% of the blend), with reserve wines that go back to 2009, including 20% from the reserve magnums Bollinger is so famous for. This bottle was disgorged in November 2019 and dosage is 7 grams per liter, about average for Bollinger today.
As I have written before, many of Champagne’s big houses have embraced the ambitious spirit of grower Champagne with their recent bottlings, wines that often place more emphasis on variety and place than the flagship blended cuvées that are the core of what Champagne has represented in the past. This is yet another example. The new PN VZ 15 is superb, and sharply priced as well, something that is not often the case with new grande marque Champagnes these days. Don’t miss it." Awarded 94 Points, Antonio Galloni

Silver Medallist - CSWWC 2020
Grape: Pinot Noir
The nose opens with aromas of cherries, jammy fruits and dried figs becoming even more complex with toasty, baked notes and light lifts of pear and elderflower. The palate is beautifully generous with a mouth-watering vivacity and rich stone fruits that are enhanced by hazelnut flavours and gentle blossom towards the finish.
Bollinger's own recommendations for food pairings will not disappoint when enjoyed with the PN VZ15 - Tomato tartlet, Risotto of Champagne lentils, Veal sweetbreads with chestnuts or Langres cheese.

I had to order this. It hasn’t arrived yet but I had to comment, I really was expecting this to cost a lot more, I’d seen the advertising on the Bollinger club and thought no way will I be able to afford that! But it’s affordable. Buy it or miss out!
