Bollinger is famous for its consistency of style, structure and aromatic complexity. This is a complex and elegant Champagne with a wonderful combination of velvety bubbles and flavours of pear, brioche, spice and fresh walnuts.
Bollinger is one of the few remaining independent family owned Champagne houses. Since 1829, this moderately small house has worked tirelessly to acquire the finest vineyard sites, now totalling 163 ha, to guarantee the highest quality wine. The Champagne region of France lies approx 100 miles East of Paris. The chalky soil in this cool northerly climate creates a unique terroir for the Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier grapes. First fermentation takes place in Stainless Steel tanks. After blending, bottling and second fermentation the Special Cuvée will rest for a minimum of three years on its lees to allow the aromatic complexity to fully develop. “Bollinger Special Cuvee. Cool, delicate briochey nose. Nice, rich fruit with honeyed undertones, reserve wine richness and texture. Complex, classy.” Antony Rose, Decanter, January 2008.

|History||In 1911, Georges Bollinger's British agent gave him the idea for the name Special Cuvée - “special” written the English way, without an accent. He thought the French expression “Brut sans année” was no match for such a subtle champagne... More than a hundred years later, the name of Bollinger's key figure champagne still symbolizes both its expertise and its history.|
|Regional Information||The Bollinger vineyard covers 164 hectares, most of which are classified Grand or Premier cru. Pinot Noir predominates, a demanding grape variety with an intense character which forms the backbone of the Bollinger style.|
