2010 bollinger, vieilles vignes francaises
Why We're Buying
Vieilles Vignes Françaises is Bollinger's unmatched super-luxurious cuvée. It comes from an ultra-limited selection of grapes and yields ultra-rich flavors. According to Wine-Searcher, it's the second most expensive pinot noir-dominant Champagne behind Krug Clos d'Ambonnay Blanc de Noirs Brut.
The 2010 Vieilles Vignes Françaises dazzles from the very first impression with striking aromatic presence and utterly captivating balance. Mirabelle, sweet red cherry, jasmine and passion fruit are some of the many notes that give the 2010 its decidedly racy, exotic personality. The 2010 exudes rare energy for this vintage, which was hardly easy in the field, not to mention real pedigree. It is absolutely unforgettable. I only hope to have a chance to taste it again someday.
