Wine Spectator featured RPM Seafood’s delicious recipe for crispy Dove sole and potato wedges in its December 15, 2020 issue, noting this dish is “a perfect excuse to break out that bottle of bubbly you’ve been saving.” For this reason, the editors of the publication selected Champagne Bollinger Special Cuvée NV as the ideal pairing.
Why? The experts at Wine Spectator explain, “the saline minerality, creamy depth, persistent fizz and edgy acidity of Champagne or another traditional-method sparkler will hook into the crispy exterior and rich interior of battered, fried white fish. Tartar sauce alongside will bring out the wine’s creamy quality.” Read the full piece and get the recipe HERE
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 flavour, 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.
