Bollinger PN AYC is an exclusive Pinot Noir Champagne sourced mainly from their own vineyards in the esteemed Grand Cru village of Aÿ. Among the select 17 Grand Cru villages in Champagne, Aÿ enjoys a prime location at the heart of key regions.
The Bollinger PN cuvée is a new addition to Champagne Bollinger’s core range. It embodies the ambition to highlight the variety of expressions of pinot noir by selecting the finest from several terroirs, each conveying a unique taste.
The blend incorporates reserve wines, including a portion that have been aged in magnums enhancing aromatic harmony and complexity.
Bollinger is renowned for Pinot Noir and for taking the time to produce an incomparable finesse to their singular champagne.
“Including the 2018, 2017, 2016, and 2009 vintage, the pale straw-copper hued NV Champagne PN AYC18 opens with stunning notes of jasmine and tropical flowers, followed by pure and expressive aromas of wild cherry, fresh orange, wet stone, and fresh roses. Full-bodied, with freshness throughout and a hint of warmth on its beautiful finish, this is the most successful of the wines from this line that I have tasted to date, offering fantastic length and gorgeous depth of fruit. It’s going to only improve with another few years in bottle, but it’s gorgeous now. Drink 2024-2034. Dosage 6 grams per liter.”

“The fourth edition of Bollinger’s limited PN series is the most expressive yet, with a hugely satisfying, expansive character. Dried pear, stewed Bramley apple and nectarine melt into the depths of reserve wine complexity, with chestnut honey and perfectly pitched savoury interest. It’s surprisingly silky, the texture surprisingly weightless, the shape rounded and cushioned rather than strict or driving. A highly rewarding Champagne, ready to drink but with interesting potential to evolve over the next five years. 100% Pinot Noir, predominantly from Aÿ, with support from the villages of Tauxières and Verzenay. Based on the 2018 vintage, with 50% reserve wines back to 2009.”

“Mouthwatering and finely meshed, with density to the satiny texture, this marries bright acidity with flavors of ripe white cherry, biscuit, pickled ginger and candied grapefruit peel. Opens slowly on the palate, revealing layers of fragrant spices, mineral and dried flowers on the finish. Disgorged January 2023. Best from 2025 through 2033. 900 cases imported.”
