We were a small group of 4 friends achieving a long held ambition to visit and experience Bolly at Bollinger. The tour and explanation was careful unhurried and thorough and all our questions and needs were fully met. Then the tasting - we opted for the expert experience which allowed us to taste 5 different wines - special cuvee, rose, grand annee 2007, grand annee rose 2007 and finally RD 2004. The wines were so incredibly different and the experience was thorough and felt very very exclusive.
Thank you Bollinger and Caroline

YOu get a very warm welcome here at Champagne Bollinger - the house itself is super-impressive and we had a wonderfully knowledgeable guide for the morning. The tour isn't cheap, but you get to see the cellars and then a tasting, and the champagne itself is just stunning! Loved the part of the tour where you get to see the special vineyard next to the maison itself. We also saw where they make and fix the oak barrels. It does help if you know a little about wine-making, but it doesn't really matter if you don't. You can let your imagination go wild! Our guide was more than happy to answer our barrage of questions - she seemed to know the house backwards!

They have only recently started doing tours for the general public, We were the sixth group to have been taken around. You need to book in advance, if you rearly want to do this tour you might have to fix your holiday around when you can book rather than the other way round. Our guide was very informative and a bit technical at times but that did not matter for us as we have been on several tours already. The reason for the technical stuff was that they are used to dealing with the trade and journalists who what that sort of information. Personally we did not find it too technical but a couple of others did. We were taken around one of the special vineyards in a small walled area next to the maison. we were also showen the coopers workshop and the barrel filling and the cellars plus the special selection area we ended up with a tasting of three types, NV, rose and a 2007 all in all a very interesting time

Where do I start? Champagne Bollinger is stunning!

From the moment you arrive you can see how special it is. The big driveway and massive house are magnificent.

We were lucky enough to be able to go on a tour - although it is not usually open to the general public.

The most expensive champagne tour we went on (at over €100 pp) - but well worth the money.

Our guide (I think her name was Caroline - sorry if I’ve forgotten!) was amazing. She had such great knowledge of champagne, the processes and anything to do with it. She explained in great detail everything about Bollinger and took us around the ‘vineyard museum’, the cellars and the workhouse where the barrels are made.

She was happy to stop and answer questions and you could tell her passion and love for champagne was great.

We ended with a tasting of 3 different bollinger champagnes and Caroline joined us for this! She explained in detail the differences and let us decide and make our own opinions on what we thought the tastes were.

Overall a wonderful day at Champagne Bollinger and if you ever get the chance to take a tour - do it!
