Bollinger Vieilles Vignes Françaises 1999 - Champagne

St Barth’s Wine

The name "Vieilles Vignes Françaises" might conjure up an image of thick trunks of ancient vines. Actually, the name refers to the old method of vine growing in France. Unlike the neat rows of horizontally trained vines so familiar to us, provignage, or layering (also called en foule, meaning "in a crowd"), results in a cramped, slightly unkempt-looking vineyard of seemingly infant vines. In this system, the vine renews itself constantly by layering a previous year's cane in November. Above the ground, it forms a new fruiting cane, and under the ground it grows its own roots, adding to the thick, zigzagging carpet of roots.

The 2000 Brut Blanc de Noirs Vieilles Vignes Francaises emerges from the glass with an elegant, refined mousse that is captivating. Sweet, perfumed and layered, the 2000 VVF shows off superb grace and a long, vibrant finish.
