The Champagne region originally owed its fame to its red wines. A favourite of King Henri IV, the Pinot Noirs from the town of Aÿ were the most popular wines of the French court. La Côte aux Enfants comes from a slope just outside Aÿ. Jacques Bollinger himself reconstituted it patiently, at the beginning of the 20th century, from over 50 differently owned plots! Today, Bollinger owns all four hectares of the legendary and iconic plot.

A secret production that was vinified in the traditional Burgundy style à la bourguignonne, 100% pinot noir from Aÿ, from the “La Côte aux Enfants” plot, with a third harvested as whole clusters (vendange entière). Burgundian vinification. Aged for eight months in small oak barrels. A secret production reserved for the greatest vintages.

The wine has a lovely burgundy colour. The nose offers aromas of black cherry, redcurrant and blackcurrant, alongside spiced notes. A wonderful aromatic intensity. Elegant on the palate, with supple tannins, revealing a wonderful balance between red and black fruit flavours, complemented by notes of violet and leather. La Côte aux Enfants 2016 is a wine destined for connoisseurs seeking out an unexpected wine from the Champagne region. This wine is surprisingly concentrated and powerful. To fully appreciate its unique style, bouquet and aromas, we recommend serving La Côte aux Enfants 2016 between 15-20 degrees Celsius. La Côte aux Enfants 2016 has a great ageing potential.
