From mag disg March 14. Brain tinglingly fresh. Pin prick bubbles, pale straw golden hue. Lime & lemon on first taste but evolves to present layers of flavour.
An absolute thoroughbred!!! — a month ago
Actually a little disappointed with this rose. Perhaps overpowered by Bollingers austere dry Pinot style of champagne that didn't allow the fruit flavour to present. Not within a bulls roar of Krugs rose but then again neither is the price!
Won't be rushing out to buy more of this. The special cuvée? Certainly. — 9 months ago
2004 full of plum and dark fruit flavours. Enjoying alone on transit through Emirates First lounge in Dubai. They do put on some nice drops in here. — a year ago
Wondering if 96 isn't to my taste? While this was pleasantly enjoyable even after two days it didn't appear to change in structure or substance . Actually prefer the DP 04! — 2 months ago
Suspect it will be a while before this wine hits it's straps fully. Couldn't resist trying some now and goodness me, it's loaded with flavour but missing some of the finesse that is currently present in the 2000.
That's not to say that the 02 isn't drinking well now. It has rich, deep, sweet notes like an understated 04 Bollinger LGA, but with that Krug subtlety. Somehow I think patience will be rewarded but who will be able to keep their hands off such a fine drop? — 8 months ago
Not going to pretend I have the palate or the language to describe the subtleties and nuances of flavours, bubbles, colour and texture to match what this wine presents. Did I want to do headstands because my tastebuds were struggling to keep up with all the different contrasts of flavour and other possibilities this wine was throwing at me? Absolutely. Would I recommend it? Totally. — a year ago
