"You are either into Bolly or you're not. It is rich, full, firm, imposing, masterful, heady, mouth-filling, intense, aromatic, weighty, serious and takes no prisoners. And, if you're not into Bolly, you're missing something. Of course, I realise the taste of wine is
personal and purely subjective, but surely Bolly can transcend that - it is omnipotent after all!"
Matthew Jukes, The Wine List 2007
