PN TX17 is the latest release of the now yearly special releases from Bollinger designed to highlight specific terroir in the context of house style. While the first two releases highlighted the village of Verzenay, ths year the shift is to Tauxières with 51% sourced from this premier cru village. Tauxières is not often spoken about, yet as a village that is late to ripen it will become more important in the years ahead, and one of the key reasons Bollinger has chose it this year. Completing the blend is additional Pinot Noir sourced from Aÿ, Verzenay and Avenay, along with reserve wines from 2016, 2009 and 2006. Dosage is a low 4g/L.

The NV PN TX 17, 100% Pinot Noir from Tauxières, is the next wine in Bollinger’s new series of single-village Champagnes. Bright and punchy, the 2017 is redolent of pear, dried flowers, mint, chalk and sage. Aromatically, the 2017 could easily be mistaken for a Blanc de Blancs such is its purity, but the richness and resonance of Pinot are unmistakable on the palate. This is an especially, vinous, layered Champagne that offers striking interplay between its intense fruit and the mineral, saline and savory-laced frame that holds it all together. The only thing this could use is a bit more body, as it is a touch austere. Disgorged: February, 2022. Drink 2024-2034.
