Product Details

Tasting Notes

This really is an absolutely fabulous Champagne, with lots of fresh citrus fruit and gentle biscuit-like flavours.

Made using a high proportion of reserve wines, adding flavour and weight to this sophisticated blend.

A great aperitif, perfect too with light savoury canapes.

Expert Opinion

In the press...

“Bollinger has had its ups and downs, like every grand champagne house. Yet any of you after a magnificent, golden, full-bodied, James Bond-approved mouthful to toast Easter with will have met your match with this great, non-vintage Champagne, which uses a higher proportion of aged reserve wines than many of its competitors. Enjoy this humdinger of a big, beefy, biscuity, cut-price Easter windfall now or put it away for 18 months for a deeper golden hue and richer, toasted-walnut flavours to emerge.”

Jane MacQuitty - The Times 30/03/2013

“One of the legendary names, Bollinger lives up to its reputation and this wine is wonderfully appley and bright, with citrus sharpness and plenty of complexity. An absolutely fabulous fizz.”

Jamie Goode - S Magazine, Sunday Express 07/04/2013

Background

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.
