|Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
The Bollinger Champagne house was founded in 1829, and now nearly two centuries later they continue to make some of the finest Champagne that's sought all over the world. The Special Cuvée is a great wine for celebrating life's moments, big, small, impromptu, there's always an occasion to enjoy a Bolly. The nose offers the first glimpse of how complex and attractive this wine is with notes of sweet biscuit, delicate orchard fruit, toasted walnut, and hay. The palate mimics the nose with refreshing minerality and baked pastries leading the long creamy and refreshing finish. Enjoy with oysters on the half shell with green apple mignonette sauce. 92 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
PS: Bollinger is the Champagne of choice of Mr. James Bond...in case you needed another reason to try it!
|Rebecca Meir-Liebman - Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
This non-vintage wine expresses the Bollinger style of smooth elegance and vibrancy. Its uniqueness and complexity comes from the addition of 10% reserve magnum wine – aged a minimum of 15 years. This Cuvée is a blend of 60% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay, and 15% Pinot Meunier. Bollinger has been producing its Special Cuvée Champagne since 1911, and it was their British wine agent who gave Bollinger the name 'Special Cuvée', feeling that “Brut sans Année” – it’s original label – didn’t sound delicate enough for such an elegant Champagne.
The colour is light gold with small refined bubbles; on the palate, experience notes of apricot, white peach, spice, toasted walnut and brioche. A very appealing Champagne with good length, drink it on its own or with fish dishes, shrimp salad or poached lobster.
|This was James Bond's favourite Champagne. Bollinger special cuvée Brut is elegant with fine, persistent bubbles, ripe stonefruit, zesty citrus, savoury toasted nuts and fresh baked pastry. Lots of finesse and power. Sexy too . Drink now and often because you only live twice. - Community Wine Reviews|
