2006 Bollinger Vieilles Vignes Francaises (Bottle - 1/75cl)
Bollingers most exclusive cuvee comes from two tiny Grand Cru plots of Pinot Noir vines in Ay. These plots are miraculous not just for their terroir, but for containing the few survivors of the phylloxera crisis which ravaged the Champagne region in the early 20th century. These are among the oldest vines in France. The vines are treated exclusively with traditional methods, usually by hand or with a horse. The production for this vintage amounted to 3,300 bottles of Blanc de Noirs Champagne.
