Our next live tasting on Instagram is for the launch of Bollinger PN VZ16. Nick will broadcast live from London, joined by Champagne Expert Essi Avellan MW and Champagne Bollinger's Deputy Chef de Cave, Denis Bunner live from Champagne Bollinger in Aÿ.

PN VZ16 is the second interpretation of this relatively new series from Champagne Bollinger, a new version will be released every year, always with a focus on one of Bollinger’s Pinot Noir crus or villages. Each year the cuvee will be an expression of a cru from the base year that highlight's its distinctive terroir and taste. PN VZ16 highlights Verzenay (VZ) which makes up 50% of the blend with the balance from Aÿ, Bouzy and Tauxières.

The taste of Pinot Noir and the terroir-driven approach are the two common characteristics of the Bollinger PN cuvée. PN VZ16 showing a fresh vision of Bollinger’s savoir-faire and vineyards.

We are tasting both the original release in bottle and magnum along with the latest release also in bottle and magnum:
Bollinger PN VZ15 75cl
Bollinger PN VZ15 150cl
Bollinger PN VZ16 75cl

Champagne Bollinger have been creating prestigious champagnes with character, distinguished by their elegance and complexity, since 1829. The story began when the son of a noble family, Athanase de Villermont, inherited an extensive estate in the Aÿ region. Foreseeing the extraordinary potential of the wines of Champagne, he founded the firm Renaudin-Bollinger & Cie upon meeting Joseph Bollinger, a widely travelled German and Paul Renaudin, a local man fascinated by the world of wine. Nearly two hundred years later, Bollinger are one of the biggest names in the region and are famously the preferred champagne brand of fictional British Secret Service agent, James Bond.

Bollinger PN, made exclusively from Pinot Noir, has been crafted by the House to express its unique vision of this specific grape variety. The VZ15 & VZ16 editions explore the unique interpretation of Pinot Noir from Verzenay from the two vintages 2015 & 2016.
