Bollinger Special Cuvée is composed of over 85% Grand and Premier crus of the three main Champagne varieties: 60% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay and 15% Meunier. It is cellar aged for twice as long as required by appellation regulations. It is moderately dosed at between 7 and 8 grams per liter.

To the eye, Bollinger Special Cuvée has a lovely golden color, distinctive of black grape varieties, and very fine bubbles. To the nose, a beautiful aromatic complexity; ripe fruit and spicy aromas; hints of roasted apples, 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.

It was the British agent of Georges Bollinger who, in 1911, christened this as “Special Cuvée”, as he found the expression “non-vintage brut” did not befit a champagne of such subtlety. Over a century later, the name of the champagne emblematic of Bollinger’s expertise still encapsulates its entire history. Special Cuvée is truly very special. It bears out the House’s hallmark know-how and ability to recreate year after year a cuvée with a constancy of style and quality.
