Why Do We Love This?

The Champagne region is known for our beautiful sparkling wines; yet, a handful of producers makes some red wines, but it is rarely exported, so this is a rare find. Bollinger sourced the grapes from that superb wines from our own parcels in the village of Ay, on a monopoly vineyard of 4 hectares, produced only in outstanding years, and aged for eight months in small oak barrels.

'La Cote aux Enfants' is a wine destined to connoisseurs & amateurs of Great Red Burgundies. This wine is surprisingly concentrated and powerful. To fully appreciate its unique style, bouquet and aromas, La Cote aux Enfants is best served at 16C. They are traditionally bottled using the same format then their sparkling counterpart, even with the same cork, yet it is indeed a still red wine.

The colour is garnet and the nose dominated by red fruits, elderberry and a bit of pepper. On the palate one can detect flavours consistent with the nose, a nice balance framed by a beautiful tannic structure. A lot of concentration and power in this rare wine. To be consumed in the next 5 years to taste more of a fruit-forward expression or to be left to age in the cellar for even more complexity.
