We often hear that the House of Bollinger incarnates a style. Most certainly, Bollinger proposes to great wine-lovers something different and unique in Champagne. This specific style is bound to a family history that, for generations, chose to stay close to its land while ensuring it developed its international reputation. In times of the merging of businesses, the House of Bollinger remains faithful to this tradition. It is one of the last family and independent houses of the Champagne trade and it intends to continue that way. Heirs of the style, the members of the present management clearly asserted their wish to ensure the continuity of the Bollinger style in a charter of ethics and quality.
La Côte aux Enfants comes from a small plot of 70 acres, located in the heart of the terroir of Aÿ one of champagne’s Grands Crus. Exceptional for its exposure and the quality of its soil, it is exclusively planted with Pinot Noir. The red coteaux champenois (the denomination that describes still wines from Champagne) from Aÿ. ‘La Côte aux Enfants’, therefore constitutes a return to the origins of Champagne. It is only produced in exceptional years from a small plot, ‘la Côte aux Enfants’, ideally located in the heart of the terroir of Aÿ and planted with Pinot Noir.
