Bollinger Brut Special Cuvée


SKU 13194


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 SpectatorVery elegant and refined in texture, with fresh, focused acidity finding fine integration with the layered notes of patisserie apple, black currant, smoky mineral and biscuit, complimented by hints of lemon zest and honey. Lingering finish. Drink now through 2020. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 5,000 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.
