Description

In 1911, Georges Bollinger’s British agent gave him the idea for the name Special Cuvée – “special” written the English way, without an accent. He thought the French expression “Brut sans année” was no match for such a subtle champagne… More than a hundred years later, the name of Bollinger’s key figure champagne still symbolizes both its expertise and its history.

Special Cuvée: Produced with over 85% of Grand and Premier Crus from the Champagne Region. The large proportion of reserve wines used to make the blend ensure a constancy of style which will pass the test of time.

Blend: 60% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay, 15% Meunier.

Over 85% Grands and Premiers crus.

Maturation: cellar aged for more than twice the time required by the appellation.

Dosage: moderate, 8 to 9 grams per liter.

To the eye: a golden colour, distinctive of black grape varieties ; very fine bubbles.

To the nose: a beautiful aromatic complexity ; ripe fruit and spicy aromas ; hints of roasted apples, apple compote and peaches.
On the palate: a subtle combination of structure, length and vivacity ; bubbles like velvet ; pear, brioche and spicy aromas, notes of fresh walnut.
