PN VZ 15 is the first wine in a new series that will be reproduced every year from now on, always with a focus on one of Bollinger’s Pinot Noir crus, or villages. The first one happened to be Verzenay with most of the base wines from 2015 – hence the VZ 15 moniker. Most of the base wines are from Verzenay, with additions from Aÿ, Bouzy and Tauxières, and reserve wines from 2009 and 2010. Unusually, 20% of the reserve wines come from Bollinger’s réserves de magnum, i.e. reserve wines stored in magnum bottles.

Tasting Note: Disgorged in November 2019 with seven grams per liter dosage, Bollinger's new NV Brut Blanc de Noirs PN VZ15 is based on the 2015 vintage, with reserve wines dating back to 2009, and derives largely from the village of Verzenay. Offering up aromas of green pear, honeycomb, rye toast, candied peel and buttery pastry, it's medium to full-bodied, vinous and enveloping, with a creamy attack, fine depth at the core and ripe but racy acids, complemented by a pinpoint mousse. This is a charming, gourmand and elegantly balanced Blanc de Noirs that represents a fine addition to the Bollinger portfolio.
作為007最喜愛的香檳，Bollinger以Pinot Noir作主要葡萄。而最稀有酒款VVF（Vieilles Vignes Françaises）更是來自單一葡萄園的100% Pinot Noir。他們推出一款全新酒款PN VZ15，同樣是以100% Pinot Noir釀造。
這瓶全黑的Bollinger型格非常，是酒莊自2008年推出Rosé NV以來第一款新酒，取名PN當然是代表Pinot Noir。而VZ便是香檳著名的特級村莊Verzenay，位於Montagne de Reims，代表這瓶PN的Pinot Noir約一半來自Verzenay，其餘來自Aÿ、Bouzy等村莊。而15便是2015的意思，但這瓶香檳並不是年份香檳，而是代表主要基酒（Base Wine）是來自2015年，加上20%來自2009年的存釀酒（Reserve）釀成。Pinot Noir存釀酒主釀是來自酒窖中熟成的雙瓶裝（Magnum）存酒。
