Notes
Based on the 2019 vintage with 50% of reserve wines in the blend, the Bollinger’s Special Cuvée Brut NV is a fine-tuned assemblage of 60% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Meunier aged three on lees and finished with an eight grams per liter dosage. Brimming with aromas of ripe white peach, persimmon, lemon slice cookies, fresh brioche, and honey, the medium to full-bodied palate is textural and weighty with a succulent red fruit core trussed up beautifully by vivacious, racy acidity. Refreshing and focused, it finishes long and honeyed.

Bollinger

There are seldom few who are not familiar with the Champagne house, Bollinger. Firmly positioned as a Grande Marques, Bollinger dates back to 1829, when Jacques Bollinger and Paul Renaudin began creating these exquisite and highly traditional wines. The house flourished under the leadership of Madame Lily Bollinger, who often rode her bicycle around the vineyard and was known for remarking when asked about her 1955 Vintage, “I drink it when I’m happy, and when I’m sad. Sometimes I drink it when I’m alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I’m not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise I never touch it – unless I’m thirsty.”

Now, her great-nephew, Ghislain de Montgolfier is at the helm. Fermentation takes place in used oak barrels and extended ageing sur lies last between 6 and 9 years prior to disgorging. Doseage is low to ensure balance and finesse, with many wines being riddled by hand, including the simply stunning Grande Annee.
