2008 Bollinger Vieilles Vignes Francaises Blanc De Noirs
1 in stock
The Vieilles Vignes Françaises are intrinsically linked with Champagne Bollinger’s history. In the ungrafted vines, there is a memory that was almost lost: an extraordinary, moving reminder of our cultural heritage, of the Champagne region before phylloxera. Miraculously, two plots survived this outbreak, Chaudes Terres and Clos Saint-Jacques in Aÿ. Maison Bollinger’s Vieilles Vignes Françaises are made exclusively from these legendary parcels.
These two miraculously-surviving clos, with Grand Cru classification, are planted using the en foule layering system, and worked and cultivated using the ancient method of provignage, sometimes even with the help of a draught horse. Vieilles Vignes Françaises is a symbol, bearing an almost-forgotten memory: an extraordinary and deeply moving memory of heritage.
