2006 inspired the Cellar Master to blend a unique cuvée, one that would be able to fully express the identity of the vintage. The great 2006 harvest also gave the opportunity to make an exceptional red wine, one of the great savoir-faire of the House and a symbol of its expertise with Pinot Noir. Bollinger Rosé 2006 is the very first limited edition vintage that is exclusively dedicated to a rosé at Champagne Bollinger.
