PN AYC18 graces the senses with its enchanting appearance—a glistening golden hue adorned by alluring bronze reflections. On the nose, it orchestrates a captivating symphony of aromas, intertwining notes of honey, sumptuous fruit jellies, and quince with the seductive essence of candied citrus. A subtle marzipan undertone and the zest of blood orange gracefully harmonize, accompanied by a delicate interplay of sweet spices and a refreshing menthol nuance. On the palate, this wine reveals its character—serious yet understated, unfolding with beautiful expansiveness and culminating in a grand finale of confit citrus that enhances its enduring freshness.

For culinary companionship, delight in Scallop Carpaccio with citrus, savor the timeless Duck à l’orange, and conclude with the delectable Quince and almond tart. To unlock its full potential, serve PN AYC18 at a temperature between 10 and 11°C, whether enjoyed immediately or aged in your cellar, where it promises a graceful evolution. This wine is emblematic of Bollinger's rich history, celebrating Pinot Noir as a pillar of its style, while also embracing innovation as it reinterprets its vineyards and savoir-faire with each new edition, a testament to the Maison's enduring legacy.

Rich fruited nose, toasty, red fruit, sultana. Bubble fine... Firm acidity, chalky, minerality. Talcy long line. Waves of red fruit, citrus, brioche and red apple keep sliding back. Compelling.
