Bollinger Special Cuvée

Cuvee: Brut Non-Vintage
Vintage: Multi-Vintage
Bollinger Spécial Cuvée Multi-Vintage truly expresses Bollinger's house style. This stylish champagne offers biscuity flavours and hints of white fruit, with a rich, full-bodied palate perfectly balanced by fresh acidity. Special Cuvée is the result of the delicate blending between harvest grapes and a majority of reserve wines, including some aged in magnums for more than 15 years in Bollinger’s cellars.

The 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 (15 months). Dosage: 8 to 9 g/l

Tasting Note
Eye: A golden colour, distinctive of black grape varieties; very fine bubbles

Nose: Beautiful aromatic complexity; ripe fruit and spicy aromas; hints of roasted apples, apple compote and peaches

Mouth: A subtle combination of structure, length and vivacity; bubbles like velvet; pear, brioche and spicy aromas, notes of fresh walnut

Food Pairing
Any fish, especially sushi and sashimi. Seafood: shrimp, prawn, crayfish, grilled lobster. Poultry and white meat. Parmesan, good cured ham
