The Vieilles Vignes Françaises are intrinsically linked with Champagne Bollinger’s history. In the ungrafted vines, there is a memory that was almost lost : an extraordinary, moving reminder of our cultural heritage, of the Champagne region before phylloxera. Miraculously, two plots survived this outbreak, Chaudes Terres and Clos Saint-Jacques in Aÿ. Maison Bollinger’s Vieilles Vignes Françaises are made exclusively from these legendary parcels. Both are classified as Grand Cru, and are still grown in the old en foule way, using a traditional layering method known as provignage. 2,477 numbered bottles of Vieilles Vignes Françaises 2013 were produced.
