Buy Bollinger Special Cuvee Champagne
The denomination Special Cuvee was created in 1911. The idea came from William Folks, then partner of the illustrious London House of Mentzendorff. This great wine lover felt it was an insult to simply call this great wine “non vintage”. The suggestion of naming it “Special Cuvee” was immediately approved by Monsieur Bollinger.

“Special Cuvée is the result of the delicate blending between harvest grapes and a majority of reserve wines, part of which have been aged in magnums for 5 to 15 years. Blend: 60% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay, 15% Meunier. Over 85% Grands and Premiers crus. Maturation: cellar aged for more than twice the time required by the appellation. Dosage: moderate, 8 to 9 grams per litre.
To the eye: a golden colour, distinctive of black grape varieties ; very fine bubbles.
To the nose: a beautiful aromatic complexity ; ripe fruit and spicy aromas ; hints of roasted apples, apple compote and peaches.
On the palate: a subtle combination of structure, length and vivacity ; bubbles like velvet ; pear, brioche and spicy aromas, notes of fresh walnut.”
