Product Description

Bollinger Special Cuvee NV Champagne has a rich, biscuity nose with a hint of summer fruits. It's full of flavours of nuts and toast on the palate and some citrus characters abound, balanced by excellent acidity.

The Special Cuvée is the purest expression of Bollinger's style.

Background: Bollinger uses only the ‘cuvée’ juice in the making of Special Cuvée. Depending on vintage, 100% of Grand Cru's and part of the Premier Cru's are barrel fermented. Bollinger uses small stainless steel tanks to conduct the fermentation of the other cru's.

Special Cuvée is a blend of wines coming from the most recent harvest, and also wines from previous harvests, including reserve wines held in magnum.

After second fermentation, Special Cuvée then ages in cellars for at least 3 years. After riddling and disgorging Special Cuvée then rests in cellars for a minimum of 3 months prior to shipment.
