    Cuvée presentation

    Intended as a tribute to the origins of the Champagne vineyards, and fêted for its reds, Cuvée Côte aux Enfants is a red Coteaux Champenois from Aÿ. Produced only in exceptional years in the "Côte aux Enfants" lieu-dit located in the terroir of Aÿ, this still wine is made from Pinot Noir grapes matured under ideal exposure and soil conditions. It provides an insight into what the red wines of Champagne might have been at the peak of their splendour, when they supplanted their Burgundy counterparts at the table of Henry IV. A wine with astonishing concentration and power, featuring elderberry, redcurrant, cherry and licorice aromas. Production of this wine remains exclusive (4,000 bottles per year)

    Information about domain Bollinger

    "Before being a great Champagne, Bollinger is first and foremost a great wine". It is undeniable, a Bollinger spirit actually exists. In the wines certainly, but also in Aÿ. The involvement and seriousness of the people involved in the design of these great wines closely contribute to their success. Bollinger is also one of the few rare Champagne houses to have remained as a family since its creation in 1829. The maison was founded by Athanase de Villermont who had inherited the vineyard of Champagne, Joseph Bollinger, a German merchant and Paul Renaudin, a Champenois who was passionate about wine. The Bollinger and Villermont families united their fate at the same time as their profession with Joseph Bollinger's marriage to Louise-Charlotte, Athanase's daughter. Their children would take over the rein. There is a 163-hectare vineyard located, for more than 80%, in grands and premiers crus, and providing over 60% of its needs in grapes. One of the interesting facts about this maison is the preponderance of Pinot Noir which gives great flavour and strength to the champagnes. Another particularity of the maison is that part of the fermented reserve wines in wood is then conserved in magnums, with cork stoppers, for 5 to 12 years before being incorporated into the whole. Finally, on the management side, in September 2007, Ghislain de Mongolfier handed over the reins to Jérôme Philipon who followed in his footsteps while emulating his style. This all went well and there is no doubt that the brand continues to shine in the starry sky of Champagne.
