BOLLINGER Special Cuvée Brut
|Grapes: Chardonnay Pinot Noir Pinot Meunier
||Origin: France, Non Vintage
Lea & Sandeman review
Bollinger is undoubtedly one of the very best of the Grandes Marques, consistent in its high quality of wine used in the blend, and recognizable for its very distinctive style; a cut above the rest, perhaps.
Other reviews and comments
Yellow-gold. Smoky pear and toffee on the nose, with an exotic orange peel quality adding complexity. Pliant orchard fruit flavors deliver serious palate-staining depth, and show good cling to the finish. A classic example of Bollinger, with the oomph to take on rich foods.

Bollinger Special Cuvée is as reliably excellent as ever, with that house’s trademark richness and length
Andrew Neather, The Evening Standard
(a blend of 60% pinot noir, 25% chardonnay and 15% pinot meunier; the blend is in large
proportion from 2 and 3 year old wines). Bollinger consistently seems to deliver with this wine and once again, this
is really a lovely effort with its lemon and white flower aromas that complement the solidly complex, crisp and very pure flavors
that possess fine detail and excellent intensity on the yeasty and lingering finish. Though the effervescence is not ultra fine,
neither is it coarse and among the bigger houses, this is one of the better larger production cuvées.

Exudes honey, with richness and a supple texture. Peach, biscuit and dried orange peel notes add complexity, and
the wine glides to a long, lingering aftertaste of honey and brioche. Nov 2006
