A structured, long and lively Bollinger Champagne

The Special Cuvee by Bollinger is a wine produced in the Champagne appellation. This cuvee owes its name to Georges Bollinger who, found the name "Brut sans année" unsuitable and decided to rename it. This Bollinger champagne is made from a blend of 60% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Meunier. 85% of the grapes used by Bollinger in the production of its wines come from Grands Crus and Premiers Crus. Following the blending process, Bollinger's Special Cuvée enjoys an exceptionally long maturation period in the cellar.

With its golden color and fine effervescence, the Special Cuvée by Bollinger reveals a nose with complex aromas of ripe fruit and spices, along with notes of roasted apples, compote and peaches. On the palate, this Bollinger champagne is structured, long and lively, offering tasty touches of pears, brioche, spices and fresh nuts.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Disgorged in the second half of 2019, the latest release of Bollinger's NV Brut Special Cuvée is based on the 2015 vintage, complemented by around 60% reserve wines. The wine is still quite tightly wound after its recent disgorgement, opening in the glass with notes of crisp yellow orchard fruit, freshly baked bread, clear honey and orange peel, with little sign of the nuttiness to come with bottle age. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, muscular and incipiently textural, with a deep core, ripe acids and a pinpoint mousse. This isn't the most incisive vintage of Special Cuvée, but it's powerful and vinous and will have fine gastronomic potential with a little bottle age.
