A delicate rose color is derived from the legendary La Côte aux Enfants Pinot Noir. The nose is greeted by aromas of redcurrant and black fruits that are accompanied by lovely hints of citrus. On the palate, there is a great deal of delicacy. The freshness and creamy texture are prolonged in the racy finish.Bollinger is often considered the ultimate food pairing Champagne, and La Grande Année Rosé 2012 is no exception. This wine pairs beautifully with duck breasts filets, quail, guinea fowl or venison sauce Grand Veneru. It serves as a great enhancement to oriental cuisines, and complements rhubarb or red berry crumble beautifully.

This goes from zero to 60 right out of the gate, with an intense spine of acidity driving tightly meshed flavors of crushed black currant, ground coffee, candied grapefruit peel and toasted almond. The profile expands on the palate, carried by the fine, raw silk-like mousse. Richly aromatic and expressive from start to lasting, spiced finish. Disgorged July 2019. Drink now through 2037. 850 cases imported.

The 2012 La Grande Année Rosé is airy, gracious and so wonderfully inviting. Crushed flowers, mint, white pepper and red berry fruit are all gracefully woven together. Today, the 2012 is naturally quite young and still shows the tension of a Champagne that was disgorged just a few months ago. Readers who prefer Champagnes with softer edges and a bit more flavor complexity will want to cellar the 2012. I have to admit, I very much like the wine today, in its youthful state, where its energy and focus are front and center. The 2012 is a blend of 67% Pinot Noir and 33% Chardonnay taken from 21 villages built around a core of Aÿ and Verzenay Pinot Noir and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger and Oiry Chardonnay, crus that are quite complementary. Disgorged January 2020. Dosage is 8 grams per liter.

As a rich dense Champagne that manages to bring in so many complex flavors, this is impressive. It has tense acidity, along with fresh red fruits that are just beginning to deepen and concentrate. They are balanced with the minerality and acidity as well as the weight of the Pinot Noir. Begin to drink this beautiful wine now although it has many years ahead of it.

Disgorged with eight grams per liter dosage, Bollinger's 2012 Brut La Grande Année Rosé is showing beautifully, wafting from the glass with aromas of raspberries, plums, orange rind, walnuts and fresh bread that only hint of the complexity to come. Full-bodied, broad and vinous, with fine depth at the core, a pinpoint mousse and racy acids, it concludes with a long and perfumed finish. The blend includes 5% red wine exclusively from Bollinger's La Côte Aux Enfants vineyard-which imparts delicate phenolic grip. Drink Date: 2020-2040.
