The Story

ON THE NOSE:

The nose delivers floral aromas such as hawthorn, lilac and violet as well as fruity aromas of apricot, apple and fresh pineapple. After the wine has warmed a little, discreet notes of coffee will appear.

ON THE PALATE:

It is harmonious, fresh and elegant. On the first sip, notes of yellow fruits, pineapple, apricot and mirabelle plum complement each other. Notes of white flowers, hawthorn, lilac
and jasmine will appear afterwards. This beautifully crisp and fresh cuvée leaves a feeling of purity and fruitiness on the palate followed by beautiful flavours of green apple and lemon.

FOOD MATCHES:

Very elegant, this CELEBRIS VINTAGE 2002 extra-brut cuvée is ideal as an aperitif. It will also be perfect with free-range poultry, sweetbread with a lemongrass sauce or fishes served in a sauce
like monkfish with a browned butter sauce. This cuvée is made to please the most refined palates.

Written Notes

Early a grand and concentrated, oily, full-bodied wine. The flavor is a fine balancing act between softness and freshness. Nuts, toffee, and honey were early recognizable aromas in this wine. Suddenly fully ripe and Bollinger deep chocolate saturated and impressive. Seem much older than it is.

Have seen some widely varying reviews of this wine but this bottle was a pleasure. Certainly some development but still full of life and delightfully fresh. Good bright acidity underlining the wine – I understand that there is no malo so that would explain that to an extent. Lovely richness. It seems pinot dominant but I think most vintages are perhaps tipped slightly the other way or at least reasonably even. Lots of delicious stonefruit, fig and most especially honey notes. Oodles of honey. A rich, full-flavoured champagne with lots of length and life.
