Notes from Producer

The name of Bollinger’s emblematic champagne, with its English spelling, encapsulates its entire history. It was the British agent of Georges Bollinger who, in 1911, christened it “Special Cuvée”, as he found the expression “non-vintage brut” did not befit a champagne of such subtlety. Over a century later, the name of the champagne emblematic of Bollinger’s expertise still encapsulates its entire history.

Special Cuvée is composed of over 85% Grand and Premier crus of the three main Champagne varieties: 60% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay and 15% Meunier.

Appearance: A golden colour, distinctive of black grape varieties; very fine bubbles.

Nose: A beautiful aromatic complexity; ripe fruit and spicy aromas; hints of roasted apples, compote and peaches.

Palate: A subtle combination of structure, length and vivacity; bubbles like velvet; pear, brioche and spicy aromas, notes of fresh walnut.

Dosage: 8-9g/L

Ageing on lees: 30-36 months
