Bollinger Vieilles Vignes Francaises 2006 Vintage Champagne is an exceptionally aromatic champagne revealing complexity and maturity. Vieilles Vignes Françaises is a taste of Champagne in bygone days: a very small production from miraculously preserved and un-grafted vines, grown the traditional way.

Pairs well with…

  • Fish
  • Parmesan
  • Seafood
  • Shellfish
  • Summer Fruits
  • White Meat
Grape: Pinot Noir
Grapes were harvested on 14th September and the maturation duration is more than twice the required time set forth by the appellation.
Honey and spiced bread; notes of candied citrus, quince, dried exotic fruits and ginger. The palate is both dense and subtle with spicy notes evoking ginger, pepper or vanilla. A great wine remarkable for its wonderful balance and consistency in the mouth.
Pairs perfectly with truffles and caviar.

In the early 20th century, the vines of Champagne were destroyed by phylloxera. Everything had to be replanted using American rootstock, to fight the pest. Two walled Bollinger plots classified as Grands
Crus: Chaudes Terres, and Clos St Jacques, in Aÿ remain ungrafted. These three plots were grown the traditional way, following the propagation method - provignage. This method allows a small proportion of an aerial stem to be trained under the soil where new roots can grow, creating an independent plant in its own right. Worked by hand and even sometimes with the help of a cart-horse. Bollinger Vieilles Vignes Françaises is a symbol of a bygone era: a reminiscent, extraordinary legacy.
