Bollinger James Bond Spectre Edition Brut 2009
To the eye: Bollinger Spectre Limited Edition has a deep golden colour, which demonstrates the wine's maturity as well as Bollinger's winemaking methods. To the nose: the vintage boasts a refined complexity, the expression of the Grands crus' terroirs. White flowers, citrus fruit, delicately stewed pear with hints of vanilla, toasted aromas, hazelnut and breadcrumbs. To the palate: the wine shows a good maturity yet remains quite brisk and lively. We move through candied fruit, mirabelle plum, quince paste and honey with a finish that reminds us of bitter orange.
