After the success of the Bollinger PN VZ 15 this long awaited Bollinger PN VZ 16 has now been launched with tiny amounts of limited stocks it will be sold within a blink of an eye.
Bollinger are famed for their Pinot Noir so there is little surprise that it’s signature rich, open style shines through. The wonderful smoky, nutty and caramel tones imparted by Bollinger’s distinct foudre ageing are already present and the reserve wines, aged for up to 15 years en magnum, add to its exceptional aromatic intensity.
This Bollinger PN VZ 16 is 100% Pinot-focused (PN) blend from vineyards in Verzenay (VZ) based on the 2016 vintage. With the high proportion of Pinot coming from the chalky soils of Verzenay, PN VZ 16 showcases the charm of this unique terroir. Wonderful depth, elegance and tension, combine with a beautiful saline finish.
“Soft, open-knit and wonderfully inviting PN VZ 16 is a worthy follow up to the sublime 2015 that launched this new Blanc de Noirs in the Bollinger range last year. Sweet red cherry, Mirabelle, spice, mint and dried flowers all grace this wonderfully translucent, expressive Blanc de Noirs. North-facing sites in Verzenay that confer tension and energy make up about half the blend, with wines from Aÿ, Bouzy and Louvois playing supporting roles. Vinification is done in equal parts steel and oak. This release is based on 2016 (50% of the blend), with reserve wines that go back to 2006, including 23% from reserve magnums. Those who enjoy Blanc de Noirs will adore the PN VZ 16. I find the interplay of vibrancy and the creamier notes that are so typical of the house style to be incredibly appealing.”
