More than a great Champagne, Bollinger is a great wine. It is because everything here starts in the vineyards; where the requirement of excellence rules the selection of crus. With 163 hectares, Champagne Bollinger operates in over 60% of its own vineyard to the need of its vintages - an absolutely exceptional situation in Champagne - which guarantees the qualitative continuity of style. The same requirement governs the selection of crus. Bollinger stocks over 80% in Grand and Premier Crus, which only represents 20% of the number of wines of the appellation. The quality of selected grapes justifies Bollinger's exclusive use of the cuvée, which means the first press at the time of the harvest. Another exception in Champagne.
