Wine Enthusiast reviewer Roger Voss selected Champagne Bollinger Special Cuvée as one of his favorite non-vintages champagnes in a recent roundup. Bollinger’s flagship NV Champagne is in a category of its own, no doubt a result of the almost unthinkable level of labor-intensive practices that go into making this blend.
Voss’ comments reinforce Bollinger’s commitment to craftsmanship. He says, “dominated, as always, by Pinot Noir and with wood fermentation and aging, this Champagne has a great poise between freshness and richness. It is intense and ripe, with apple and minerality coming together.” Read the full roundup 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 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.
