As it often is, the Blanc de Blancs La Bolorée (Pinot Blanc) is the most complete of these Champagnes, and that is saying a lot this year. Quite simply, the 2014 Bolorée is an utterly mesmerizing Champagne. A kaleidoscope of aromas, flavors and textures takes over the senses. Extravagant in its beauty, the Bolorée will thrill readers lucky enough to find it. In tasting, the Bolorée offers a level of richness that recalls Pinot, but with the brightness and focus of Pinot Blanc. Non-dosé. Disgorged: April 2018. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, November 2018)

Cédric Bouchard makes tiny quantities of single vineyard, single vintage, single grape champagnes in the Côte des Bar. La Bolorée is made from old vine Pinot Blanc planted in 1960. It offers aromas of pear, lemon, licorice, and herbs. On the palate there is a suggestion of crushed gravel and the ripeness of the ‘09 vintage nicely balances the fantastic freshness and acidity. 12.5% ABV. Disgorged April 2013. $145.

Even better than the Haute Lemble. Deep, rich, resonant and all pleasure.

Nerd wine. Salty, round, sweet citrus, prosciutto, melons. Hard to take notes during pump overs...

Still gorgeous. Such depth of flavor weightlessly. Seems on a nice plateau. Not in decline
