Bollinger Spectre Limited Edition is produced in small old oak barrels so as not to give the wines the taste of wood or tannins. This wine presents with a deep golden color, which demonstrates the wine’s maturity as well as Bollinger’s winemaking methods. 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. On the palate, the wine shows a good maturity yet remains quite brisk and lively. You move through candied fruit, mirabelle plum, quince paste and honey with a finish that is reminiscent of bitter orange.
