Bollinger PN TX17, Brut Champagne -En Primeur (case of 6)

DFC07917K
En Primeur Wine ?

TX17 is based on the 2017 vintage and focuses on the village of Tauxières, supported by a little Verzenay and Avenay and features reserve wines going back to 2006. Tauxières is all about deep limestone and shallow clay soils, and this brings a distinct intensity, tension, and precision, while the mature reserve wines add richness, maturity, and a sense of harmony.
 
This is a unique and exciting addition to the series, expressive and ready to drink but with some cellaring potential too.  Drink now – 2035(+)

'almost completely dominated by the extremely exciting and rare Tauxières Premier Cru, which is one of two villages classified 99% on the Grand Cru scale. Despite an impressive vineyard area of 237 hectares, it is extremely rare to come across champagnes dominated by this fantastic Cru. A cooler microclimate and a thinner soil layer with even more compact chalk than sunny Bouzy make the wines from here lighter and more elegant than Bouzy but stronger than Verzenay which is also part of this exciting Blanc de Noirs with predominantly base from 2017. Here is also a small splash of Avenay to give a little buttery roundness to the cuvée with its low dosage of 4 grams. The reserve wines that always come from magnum bottles under low pressure make up 48% from three vintages in 2016, 2009 and 2006. In total, half of the wine is made in oak barrels and the other half in steel tanks. The scent has features of lead pencil, juniper and freshly lacquered boat together with more classic coffee notes, rose petals, apricot and peach. The taste is vivid and multifaceted with a lively precision, lighter fruit aromas than you normally find in Bollinger's wines. Even cassis is one of the more unexpected aromas in this finely tuned complex symphony. Very impressive and exciting champagne that really makes me want to taste more and that I will look out for to my private cellar.' 92-94 pts Richard Juhlin

'Delicate nose of toast, ginger, and cinder toffee, opening out to sweet patisserie, especially almond and apricot jam. The palate shows amazing intensity and tension, palpable mineral grip, more toast, a hint of coffee and long fragrant notes of yellow fruits. This has immediate appeal, especially for those who appreciate the modern very low-dosage styles, but there is plenty in reserve. Drink 2022-2035' Aiden Schwarzer, Fine Wine Consultant
