Wine Spectator Review
A rich, smoky Champagne, with hints of marzipan and fennel seed accenting honeyed malt, bread dough, baked apple and gingersnap flavors. It's all focused by intense acidity, which meshes beautifully into the layers of flavor and refined texture, with a lingering finish. Drink now through 2021.
The Special Cuvee is the most accomplished expression of the Bollinger style. The House's entire know-how is revealed in it's ability to recreate, year after year, a blend that is constant in quality and style, and to recompose this bouquet of aromas, this unique combination of body, balance, vinosity and finesse. It is therefore on this wine that the House bases its difference, makes its qualitative choices and means to be judged.
60% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay, 15% Pinot Meunier
