Bollinger might be a Grande Marque but their single-village (or almost) releases are their answer to grower Champagne. The latest – PN TX17 – shines a light on the cool and chalky Premier Cru Tauxières. Based on the 2017 vintage, the wine includes 48% reserve wines – from 2016, 2009 and 2006, bringing additional richness and complexity. On the nose, it is linear and precise – with pure, delineated aromas of lemon rind, tangerine, smoke and riper peach fruit. On the palate, however, the Pinot shows its breadth with a structured framework. This isn’t a wine about fruit but texture with a supple mousse, mouth-filling and fine-textured. Rich yet bright in character, mouth-watering acidity drives a long, pithy finish with the scent of toasted almonds. It verges on the austere with its 4g/l dosage, but it works beautifully to create a pleasantly abrupt edge to the palate. Impressive.
