About This Wine
There really is a lot that’s special about Bollinger’s Brut Special Cuvee.
That’s why is has become the signature bottling of the Bollinger estate, one of the world’s most revered Champagne houses. It combines the three basic Champagne varieties — Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier — but beyond that, there’s nothing “basic” about it.
The key is the blend, and a significant portion comes from Champagne vineyards that are rated as either Grand or Premier Cru — symbolic of exceptional quality. It also includes “reserve” wines from previous vintages, providing a “base” from which to craft a truly exquisite wine.
While there are minor differences from release to release, you can always count on Bollinger Special Cuvee to exude fruit, spice and nut-like qualities, all topped with a fine mousse that refreshes and delights the palate. When you want to impress a dinner guest, or offer a special gift, you can’t go wrong with Bollinger Special Cuvee.
