Lifestyle publication Whitewall highlighted Champagne Bollinger in its weekly roundup of the best cultural and celebrity events. The piece offers a recap of last Thursday’s high tea & Bollinger Champagne soirée, hosted by Asprey London at The Beverly Hills Hotel. In the hotel’s private garden, guests gathered in support of Zoe Winkler’s This is About Humanity—a movement to help those affected at the border—while shopping Asprey’s stunning collections over glasses of Bollinger Special Cuvée and Rosé. The writer adds “Those in attendance—like Kelly Lynch, Carlota Espinosa, Anjelica Huston, Henry Winkler, Eiza González, Louise Roe, Elaine Irwin Mellencamp, Anastasia Soare, and Diana Madison—shopped and sipped, with proceeds benefitting This is About Humanity.” Read the full story HERE
In the same way that Special Cuvée stands apart from non-vintage Champagnes, Bollinger Rosé is an exception for Rosé Champagnes. What is more, it is a relative secret, as Bollinger did not release a non-vintage Rosé until 2008 and the quantity produced is quite limited. The wine begins as Special Cuvée and then Bollinger's specialty as the Pinot Noir producer in Champagne takes center stage, as the red fruits that join the conversation dance vibrantly, the finish has just a hint of perfectly ripe tannin, and the deep complexity of the wine shines through transparently.
From vineyard to bottling, Special Cuvée sees such an extraordinary level of care and attention, it is difficult to place within the non-vintage or, really, any Champagne category. It is a Champagne that stands apart. Within one bottle, all the complexity of flavor, texture and pleasure that Champagne can offer. Special Cuvée is truly a journey of devotion from Bollinger.
Bollinger is one of the rare Grande Marques that’s still family owned. Known for its rich, elegant and polished style of Champagne, their outstanding wines are the result of rigorous attention to detail and incredibly labor-intensive practices that few houses are willing to undertake. Underscoring its excellence, Bollinger has remained British secret agent James Bond's Champagne of choice since 1973.
