Expert Reviews

"Bollinger has more than 700,000 magnums of reserve wines, all with cork closures and aged for between five and 15 years, which contribute 5-10 per cent of the Special Cuvee. Once tiraged (bottled), the wine spends three years before being disgorged. Small wonder it is magnificently complex and rich, with superb length and intensity, and the finish that simply says drink more. "

Rating 95 - James Halliday, Weekend Australian (10/DEC/2011)

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Family owned and controlled, Bollinger is dedicated to producing a consistent and distinctive style of Champagne. Bollinger’s wines are predicated by their unique vineyards: rich, assertive and with great power yet always with finesse.

To reinforce its commitment to style and quality, Bollinger launched its Charter of Ethics and Quality in 1992 (reinforced by its Ten Commitments), which guarantees the continuity of the policy of the House for the years to come.

In 2006 the prestigious French wine magazine La Revue du Vin de France surveyed the most significant group of sommeliers and wine writers for them to nominate the top 50 Champagne Houses which would be regarded as the most responsible for the greatness of Champagne as a unique wine region. Bollinger was selected as the number one House by this group.
