What does make the wines stand out, however, is the exotic character of the fruit, particularly from the Chardonnay, which is not devoid of its usual aromas of white flowers and yellow fruits, but also possesses nuances of tropical fruit and a tell-tale vanilla-finesse opening out on the finish. Color: Light Straw. Aroma: Light citrus and Gala apples with a subtle hint of Marcona almonds. Taste: A smooth mousse, with crisp red apples notes followed by a very subtle nuttiness in the finish. This one of a kind wine displays the exceptional qualities of the 2003 vintage as made in the traditional Bollinger style.
