We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

We have a long and memorable history with Bollinger Champagne in this family... our dad was a big fan of Bollinger, with its rich style, intense aromas, and creamy palate due to gentle oak aging. Early in my career, I went to work for Dreyfus, Ashby Imports when they were the exclusive supplier of Bollinger. I had the honor of hosting events in Washington DC with members of the Bollinger family, as well as visiting this iconic Champagne house in the town of Ay. The high quality reputation of the estate continues today. During a recent trip to the Bordeaux region to taste the 2010's out of barrel, Thomas found himself greeted by many glasses of Bollinger non-vintage at several chateaux. The Bordelais consider Bollinger to be one of the best and most regal expressions of Champagne available.

Wine EnthusiastThe classic Bollinger nonvintage is, as always, rich and firmly structured. With the roundness that comes from aging the wines in wood before blending, it has a ripe, smooth edge. Underneath, the texture is solid, with hints of apple and pear and mature acidity.

Wine SpectatorVibrant and well-knit, this layers a refined texture and mouthwatering acidity with a rich profile of dried white cherry, raw almond, mandarin orange peel and smoke-tinged minerality. Finely knit and focused, presenting a creamy, spiced finish. Drink now through 2020. 11,000 cases imported.

James SucklingA Champagne in good form, the nose has a playful contradictory nature with complexity that comes from deep within the DNA cast against some very fresh notes - lime citrus, lime leaf, lemon, nectarine, white cherry and deeper more brambly red fruits, plus gentle spices and freshly roasted nuts, all here. The palate has supple, smooth and creamy texture with a flavorsome wrap of fleshy peach and white cherry flavor. Smooth, deep and round, acidity holds fresh right through to the fresh almond finish. Drink now or hold for up to five years.

Wine AdvocateThe NV Brut Special Cuvee is fabulous. Hints of pears, pastry crust and hazelnut lead to an expansive core of fruit. There is plenty of the signature Bollinger oxidative style in this rich, enveloping Champagne. Once again the Special Cuvee is one of the best Champagnes in its price range.
