Food & Wine has developed a way to bring the essence of their beloved Food & Wine Classic event to consumers’ homes through virtual Holiday Edition tasting events on December 5.
Rather than emphasizing wintery reds, the publication’s longtime Wine Editor Ray Isle focuses on bubbles to enjoy all season long, including Champagne Bollinger Special Cuvée. He describes this non-vintage brut as gorgeous, and adds “Bollinger leans towards a richer style, full of toast and brioche notes; they’re one of my favorite Champagne houses. It’s really a Champagne that can be served straight through the meal; bring on the roast turkey, seriously.”

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.
