Bollinger Special Cuvée NV Champagne is a pale golden in colour with brioche aromas on the nose. The palate is very dry but with toasty characters that are round and richly flavoured. This wine is full-bodied and mature, with perfect balance between firmness and freshness, length equal to its richness, and with a persistent fine bead. In champagne terms, this is the definitive "masculine" style.

Winery & Vintage Info

In 1911, Georges Bollinger’s British agent gave him the idea for the name Special Cuvée - “special” written the English way, without an accent. He thought the French expression “Brut sans année” was no match for such a subtle champagne… More than a hundred years later, the name of Bollinger’s key figure champagne still symbolises both its expertise and its history.

Bollinger Special Cuvée NV Champagne is a blend of 60% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay, 15% Pinot Meunier with over 85% Grands and Premiers crus. The high percentage of pinot noir ensures a full-bodied, rich style and the addition of 5 to 10% reserve wines (each aged up to fifteen years) give complexity and depth. Yeast on the nose, dry and toasty in the mouth, with great length and perfect balance.

The final word goes to Madame Lily Bollinger - "I drink it when I'm happy and when I'm sad. Sometimes I drink it when I'm alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I'm not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise I never touch it - unless I'm thirsty."
