Review

One of the mythical champagnes of the aristocracy, an extremely fine wine, balanced and delicate, and the one that best defines the Maison Bollinger style. 80% of production accrues from rigorously selected grapes from Champagne Grands crus and Premiers crus that belong to the winery in the main (2/3), which is not only quite remarkable in the denomination but also the raison d’être and the quality assurance guarantee of this wine year after year.

Bollinger Special Cuvée is a blend of wines from different vintages, but principally from the current vintage, to which small quantities from previous years are added as well as a small but significant dosage of reserve wine (5-10%) which ensures constancy of blending, using reserve wines that Bollinger keeps especially, then ageing the produce from each vineyard separately, with a cork stopper and in Magnum bottles in their magnificent cellars. The Special Cuvée only contains between 7 and 9 g of added sugar per litre.

Matured for a minimum of 36 months before disgorgement. After disgorging, it rests for at least 3 months before being released.

It's Bollinger

A classic marque, deeper in flavour and colour than some of the other big champagne houses, I think because it's more Pinot-led. It's celebration in a bottle.

Wonderful to round out the set

Held it's own well in company of the Laurent Perrier Rose and DomPerignon. Made an important birthday the more special.

Champán

Bollinger es un gran champan que nunca decepciona a los que les guste este tipo de bebidas. Entre los cientos que hay este se puede calificar de la gama media/alta pero nada que envidiar a los top. No me ha gustado que las botellas servidas no fueran las anunciadas, si no unas de edición especial 007, pero se encontraban en perfectas condiciones.

Excelente

Extraordinaria nariz, perfectamente cuidada con finas notas a bollería, fresca, gusto equilibrado, intenso y gran after-taste, se queda en la boca y seduce de principio a fin. Champagne deliciosa y que invita a más

Ligero, complejo y equilibrado

Elaboración de gran calidad de un excelente vino según el método champenois. Resulta fácil de beber. Divertido a la vez que complejo. Excelente digestión en estómago y cabeza. Puede tomarse a cualquier hora.
