Region Champagne

Located 150 km east of Paris, Champagne is the French wine region renowned for producing the finest, most rich and complex sparkling wines in the world. The elegance, longevity and racy acidity of these wines are attributed to the influence of the chalky soils of the region and the cool, marginal continental climate. The region spans an area of 35,000 ha and has 4 main growing areas, each favouring one of the three noble Champagne varieties; Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. Champagne has a vineyard quality hierarchy based on the soils, aspect and overall quality of the grapes. Like Burgundy, these quality designations are allocated to the vineyards of the village. Of the 319 villages of Champagne, 17 have Grand Cru status and 44 villages are designated Premier Cru. All Champagne is produced by Traditional Method. The vast majority of Champagne is a blend of the three varieties and may also be a blend of several vintages producing the popular Non Vintage (NV) house styles. Top quality blends from exceptional years are sold as Vintage Champagne.

Winery BOLLINGER

Established in 1829 by Jacques Bollinger and Paul Renaudin, Bollinger is one of the most renowned Champagne houses in the world. From 1941 until 1977, the business was run by Madame Lily Bollinger who significantly expanded the Champagne house’s vineyard holdings. Today it is managed by her great-nephew, Ghislain de Montgolfier. Bollinger’s house style is rich, complex and muscular, producing Pinot-Noir dominated Champagnes with compelling depth and power and longevity.
