1999 Bollinger, Grande Année Rosé, Champagne, France

Simply stunning Rosé. As many pink Champagnes there is an element of a rustic tone, but the complex layers of this wine is impressive. Really red fruit, with almonds, strawberry, cinnamon and popcorn. The taste is immensely concentrated with muscular mousse, strawberries again and the overall rustic afterburners adding to the complexity and giving a great body warmth. There is plenty of cellar potential here. (95)
