Description & Technical Information
-
Champagne Bollinger owns an impressive 178 hectares of vineyards, of which 85% are in Grand Cru and Premier Cru villages. Their land is spread over seven main villages: Aÿ, Avenay, Louvois, Tauxières and Verzenay planted with Pinot Noir; Cuis with Chardonnay; and Champvoisy with Meunier. Bollinger are one of the few Houses to produce the majority of their own grapes for their blends. Pinot Noir represents 60% of the House's vineyards and defines the House style: complex and powerful with remarkable structure. In 2012 Champagne Bollinger was certified High Environment Value (HEV) this certification rewards a number of environmental procedures implemented at the Maison.

Bollinger PN TX17 is made exclusively from Pinot Noir with the majority of the grapes coming from the village of Tauxières based on the 2017 vintage. The significant proportion of Pinot coming from the chalky soils of Tauxières showcases the charm of this unique terroir : tension, precision and complexity. Further reserve wines, aged for over 15 years en magnum, are then added to bring a sense of aromatic harmony and further complexity to the blend.

Weather in 2017: The year was marked by spring frosts in April, followed by very hot weather at the end of May and June. The month of August was not very sunny, with little rain but present throughout the month, followed by warmth and good weather at the end of August for the harvest. Beautiful harvest despite a big worry about rot, which had little impact thanks to the sorting process.

Tasting Note: The aroma of this edition of TX17 is first characterised by notes of dried flowers, joined by aromas of tobacco and mocha. On the nose, notes of liquorice and dried fruit. The palate is fruity and highly refreshing, with notes of apricot, peach and exotic fruit, followed by flavours of acacia honey and spices. A lively, linear wine with great clarity.

Anne Krebiehl MW
“A tender nose shows of a sense of fresh, sweet cream and crushed berry – unusually with a hint of blueberry, followed by Red Delicious apple and a beautifully lifted and aromatic note of tangerine. The palate is sinuous and elegant, there is wonderful depth of fruit and that lovely signature creaminess of Bollinger expressed in superfine foam. There is subtle length that only emphasises the depth of flavour. Very elegant, very expressive, as vivid, energetic and vibrant as the previous releases under this series. Lovely. ”

“The wine is almost completely dominated by the extremely exciting and rare Tauxières Premier Cru, which is one of two villages classified 99% on the Grand Cru scale. Despite an impressive vineyard area of 237 hectares, it is extremely rare to come across champagnes dominated by this fantastic Cru. A cooler microclimate and a thinner soil layer with even more compact chalk than sunny Bouzy make the wines from here lighter and more elegant than Bouzy but stronger than Verzenay which is also part of this exciting Blanc de Noirs with predominantly base from 2017. Here is also a small splash of Avenay to give a little buttery roundness to the cuvée with its low dosage of 4 grams. The reserve wines that always come from magnum bottles under low pressure make up 48% from three vintages in 2016, 2009 and 2006. In total, half of the wine is made in oak barrels and the other half in steel tanks. The result is very beautiful and personal. The scent has features of lead pencil, juniper and freshly lacquered boat together with more classic coffee notes, rose petals, apricot and peach. The taste is vivid and multifaceted with a lively precision, lighter fruit aromas than you normally find in Bollinger's wines. Even cassis is one of the more unexpected aromas in this finely tuned complex symphony. Very impressive and exciting champagne that really makes me want to taste more and that I will look out for to my private cellar.”

“PN TX17 100% PN Base 2017 4 g/l Oldest Reserve 2006 D: Jan 2022
The partial barrel fermentation lends a toasty spice note, supported by masses of fruit, peach, grapefruit richness, blueberry, cranberry, dark cherry and hints of blackberry. Delicious dark fruit build on the palate, real richness to the fruit that’s super pure and the impact of the chalk is obvious on the palate, it adds minerality/chalk charm together with acidity make this super fresh with that great saline finish. Going back you really see the array of “crunchy fruit” and the low dosage sits really well. Barrel fermentation of 50% of the wines has created a great balance of oak impact and the 49% reserve wines back to 2006 add incredible depth. Bollinger’s own vineyards provide 80% of the fruit.”

    During a visit to the house of Bollinger in Aÿ last year, we explored champagnes from some of the region's hottest ever vintages, dating as far back as 1947. We also held a mini-vertical of Special Cuvée base vintages, tasted a trio of R.D.s and had a look at the new Coteaux Champenois.
