B13, Bollinger 2013, is a limited-edition Blanc de Noirs: just 5 Crus were chosen for the cuvée of which 92% Grand Cru & 8% Premiers Cru. Renowned for the quality of their Pinot Noir, Bollinger make some of the most in-demand Blanc de Noirs on the market, so we are very excited to be able to offer their new limited edition Blanc de Noir Bollinger B 13.
In 2013, the Champagne region faced unique weather conditions - a long winter punctuated by snow and frost - was one of the latest harvest since 1988. However despite these turbulent conditions, this vintage champagne embodies the excellence of the Bollinger vineyards on the Montagne de Reims and the resulting wine is delightful.
Bollinger are famed for their Pinot Noir so there is little surprise that its signature rich, open style shines through. The wonderful smoky, nutty and caramel tones imparted by Bollinger’s distinct foudre ageing are already present and the reserve wines, aged for up to 7 years en magnum, add to its exceptional aromatic intensity.
