1997 Bollinger Champagne R.D. Extra Brut

Wine Description

Light yellow-gold. Expansive, smoky aromas of dried citrus fruits, peach, poached pear and honey, with a slow-building spiciness. Open-knit and gently sweet on entry, then tighter and more mineral-driven in the middle palate, offering lively orange and orchard fruit flavors and touches of nougat and praline. Smoothly melds richness and vivacity, finishing with superb clarity and nervy persistence.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 1999 Vintage) The palate strikes a rich seam of autolytic complexity and is far drier than the nose might suggest. Intense, powerful and very fine indeed.
