NV Bollinger Special Cuvée, Champagne, France

Somm Picks

OVERVIEW

One of the world's most recognisable Champagnes whose consistency year in year out is truly remarkable. The special cuvée is a Pinot Noir dominated blend of Grand and Premier cru vineyard parcels and is cellar aged for twice the required duration to give that quintessential special cuvée flavour. You can't beat a bit of Bolly.

CRITIC REVIEWS

Light golden yellow, silver reflections, fine mousseux. Ripe yellow tropical fruit, delicate blossom honey, candied tangerines, a hint of biscuit. Juicy, ripe Golden Delicious apple, chalky minerality, complex and persistent, fine fruit sweetness, underlaid with a salty finish, versatile. 93 PointsFalstaff Magazine

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. The bottling is ready to drink. 92 PointsWine Enthusiast

FOOD PAIRING INSPIRATION

This champagne will match well with shellfish and seafood, hard cheese and cured hams.

VINTAGE AND WINEMAKING

This non vintage champagne is a blend of 60% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Meunier with 85% of the grapes coming from Grand or Premier cru vineyards. Eight grams of sugar is used in the dosage.

PRODUCER NOTES

A Champagne house since 1829, Bollinger is perhaps the best known Champagne in the UK with frequent product placement across media and events and a perennial place on the top shelf of every high-end supermarket or wine store. A favourite of 007, Patsy and Edina and our late majesty Queen Elizabeth II, many think of Bollinger as the British Champagne.
