Bollinger La Cote aux Enfants 2009 Magnum

 

La Côte aux Enfants, a real challenge in the Champagne region, is the combination of an exceptional terroir and an expert Burgundy-style vinification method. The concentration and strength of this wine are surprising.

 
The Champagne vineyards were originally renowned for their red wines. Those made exclusively with Pinot Noir from the village of Aÿ were a great favourite at the French Court, especially under King Henri IV.

 

Tasting Notes:

An intense deep red colour. On the nose, notes of clove, pepper, vanilla, cinnamon, honey (gingerbread), truffle, liquorice, chocolate. Morello cherry, kirsch, cherry, prune and floral notes (rose).

 

This is a red wine with character, a velvety texture and subtle balance.

 

Food Pairing:

Cushion of veal in red coteau  champenois wine. Tournedos with glazed shallots in red wine sauce. Duck and poultry in general. Tomme de Savoie and Brie de Meaux cheeses.

 

Serving:

To highlight its unique style, its bouquet and its aromas, we recommend serving La Côte aux Enfants 2009 between 16 and 18°C

 

Produced from grapes in the eponymous parcel of land reserved specially for this wine, the champagne from this top-quality hlilside is a prime example of Bollinger’s main vocation: designing great wines.

 

Grape Variety:

100% Pinot Noir Grand cru of Aÿ

Wine from one single free run. Burgundy-style cultivation and production methods (green harvesting, hand sorting on the vine then on tables, de-stemming, pre-fermentation maceration at low temperature for 8 days followed by a gradual rise in temperature).

 

Production:

Ageing for 8 months in small, recent oak barrels. Limited yields, between 6,000 and 8,000kg per hectare. Limited production, reserved for the finest vintages

Enhances the blend of La Grande Année, added in very small proportions (5-7%) to produce La Grande Année Rosé.

ABV - 11.5%

 

Background Information:

The Côte aux Enfants comes from a small plot of 2.5 acres, located in the heart of the terroir of Aÿ; one of Champagne’s grands crus. Exceptional for its exposure and quality of its soil, it is exclusively planted with Pinot Noir. This vineyard is specifically cultivated, with a green harvest that reduces the yield down to 8,000 kgs per hectare.

 

La Côte aux Enfants is produced under the Coteaux Champenois Appellation and is only made in exceptional years. The harvest date is decided carefully at the moment when the grapes reach their optimum maturity.

 

The production of the 2002 vintage was 4,357 bottles. At the harvest, the grapes are sorted ‘à la clayette’ and the harvest completely de-stemmed. Only made from the ‘jus de goutte’, the wine macerates on its skins for 10 to 12 days. It is then aged for a minimum of two years, in 205 litre oak casks. The barrels used are 3 - 5 years old so the oak influence is subtle in the finished wine.
