2001 Boll & Cie Grande Reserve
Every now and then, the winemakers see something special when they look at a vintage. The 2001 Boll & Cie Grande Reserve is it. Chardonnay selected from a single Grand Cru Vineyard in Mesnil Sur Oger - the birthplace of Blanc de Blanc Champagne. It has been sitting in our cellars for many years and our chef de cave finally picked the perfect time to disgorge it in 2019. Which means this champagne has had an impressive 18 years on lees.
As it comes from a single vineyard, there is an extremely limited production. Only 2001 bottles were produce worldwide and Australia have a small allocation. Limit of 2 bottles per person applies

Tasting Notes: A very rare Champagne which reveals itscharacter after a long aging period; fewhouses made vintage Champagne in 2001. Deep golden color; heady, powerful nosewith a baked apple aroma. Dry firm structure, mineral with hints of almond, toasted bread and brioche. Long finish with notes of nuts and sherry. Goes as well with smoked salmon as it does with white meat or cheese.
