(NV Vintage) (WA90) The NV Brut Special Cuvee is one of the finest and most consistently delicious entry-level Champagnes, as it is again this year. Brioche, hazelnuts and pears are some of the nuances the flow from this crystalline, pure Champagne. The Special Cuvee is the freshest wine in the Bollinger lineup, and shows only a touch of the warmer, oxidative notes that define the higher-end wines, but it is nevertheless an exceptionally fine, beautiful Champagne. Clean, mineral notes round out the finish. The Special Cuvee is 60% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Meunier, with the addition on 5-10% reserve wines.
Rich and bold with notes of tar, mushroom, roasted meat, cashews and lemon zest.
From our 2015 wine tasting, drank on Christmas Eve the next year. Awesome white.
light and crisp effervescence. I get brioche on the nose for sho.
Best standard Champagne
