PN, made entirely from Pinot Noir to underscore the very essence and DNA of the House style, is the first new cuvée added to Bollinger’s permanent range since rosé in 2008. Each release of PN, developed as a series to bring Bollinger’s unique vision of Pinot Noir to light, will showcase a different cru from the base year that highlights its distinctive terroir and taste. The first edition of the series, PN VZ15, explores the interpretation of Pinot Noir from Verzenay 2015 and features reserve wines dating back to 2009.
The structure and salinity of PN VZ15 makes it an outstanding Champagne to enjoy as part of a gastronomic experience. Quite versatile, the wine shines with a variety of dishes from a simple tomato tartlet, to a rich risotto with lentils and even veal sweetbreads with chestnuts. Of course, we also enjoy a glass PN VZ15 with aged cheeses.
The fruit is predominantly sourced from Verzenay (50% from 2015), characterized by the elegance, tension and salinity of Pinot Noir from this cru. Pinot Noir fruit from Aÿ, Bouzy and Tauxières were added to PN VZ15 to add aromatic synergy and complexity.
Dosage: 7 g/L
While PN is a non-vintage, 50% of the fruit comes from 2015. The growing season was warm and characterized by relatively low acid levels, yielding wines with balance, structure and freshness that can age.
