Its delicate color and golden reflections are a sign of the wine's maturity and Bollinger's winemaking methods. Great complexity; honey, gingerbread and cinnamon aromas; subtle notes of dried fruits (hazelnut) and dried flowers (lime blossom). A mature, supple, and full wine with a long finish. Pastry, candied orange, and ripe-fruit flavors with subtle notes of woodland and vanilla. A creamy effervescence; the subtle acidity of the finish adds freshness.
70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay. In 1829, Champagne Bollinger introduced an instantly recognizable, dry, toasty style that connoisseurs around the globe have coveted ever since. Six generations of the Bollinger family have maintained that trademark style, and Bollinger is one of the rare Grande Marque houses to be owned, controlled, and managed by the same family since it was founded. In 1911, Georges Bollinger's British agent gave him the idea for the name Special Cuvee—"special" written the English way, without an accent. He thought the French expression "Brut sans annee" 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. Bollinger's prestige champagne is produced only when the harvest reaches a perfect balance: it is Bollinger's version of an exceptional vintage.
