Bollinger Red Wine

Post  Rick Smith on Mon Jan 26, 2009 8:22 pm

I know they make it, and I've seen a bottle or two at retail. Anyone had it? Worth the admission ($150 at the local store), or are you just paying to say you drank a Bolly red?

Is it just a still pinot?

I know that there is a still Clos de Abonnay out there that is 100% pinot.

It's super dry/chalky and light. (the 1999)

I love their Champagnes but their Enfants is pretty bad. If you can taste it for free somehow (offline?) it's fun from a learning perspective - but nothing you want in your cellar.
