Winemaker Notes

A golden color, distinctive of black grape varieties. Very fine bubbles. On the nose, it has a beautiful aromatic complexity, ripe fruit and spicy aromas, with hints of roasted apples, apple compote and peaches. On the palate, there is a subtle combination of structure, length and vivacity. The bubbles are like velvet. Flavors of pear, brioche and spicy aromas, notes of fresh walnut.

Pair with all fish, especially sushi and sashimi,... View More

Critical Acclaim

WW 94
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com

One of the greatest and most accessible iconic wines of the world, 007 would easily attest to this fact. The Bollinger Special Cuvée has served as the world's most compelling and aristocratic Champagne of all time. In my 40+ years of wine imbibing this bubbly has taking me on a special ride on many an occasion. Medium straw to yellow in color, very rich and fine in its pinpoint bubbles, an unmistakable aroma or ripe apples and cream in the nose, yes you could say yeastiness; medium bodied with excellent textures on the palate, ; dry, medium acidity, superior balance; well balanced; demonstrative and commanding flavors of ripe fruit, earth, and creaminess in the flavors; long finish, formidable aftertaste. Perfect with lobster in a rich cream sauce. (Tasted: October 20, 2015, San Francisco, CA)

Wine Enthusiast

The classic Bollinger nonvintage is, as always, rich and firmly structured. With the roundness that comes from aging the wines in wood before blending, it has a ripe, smooth edge. Underneath, the texture is solid, with hints of apple and pear and mature acidity.

Wine Spectator

Aromatic, with accents of bread dough, smoked almond and crème de cassis, this creamy Champagne is lightly chalky in texture and framed by firm acidity, with flavors of glazed apricot, orange blossom and rich hints of clover honey and coffee liqueur. Drink now through 2022.

JS 92
James Suckling

A Champagne in good form, the nose has a playful contradictory nature with complexity that comes from deep within the DNA cast against some very fresh notes - lime citrus, lime leaf, lemon, nectarine, white cherry and deeper more brambly red fruits, plus gentle spices and freshly roasted nuts, all here. The palate has supple, smooth and creamy texture with a flavorsome wrap of fleshy peach and white cherry flavor. Smooth, deep and round, acidity holds fresh right through to the fresh almond finish. Drink now or hold for up to five years.

W&S 91
Wine & Spirits

A blend of current vintage stock with reserve wines aged in magnums, Bollinger's Special Cuvee is consistently one of the top multi-vintage blends from Champagne. Made from selected base wines vinifed in old oak casks, it has a round, smoky intensity along with a formidable balance of power and richness. Flavors of red currents and savory, rooty notes contrast hints of flowers in a lasting finish.

The Wine Advocate

The NV Brut Special Cuvee is fabulous. Hints of pears, pastry crust and hazelnut lead to an expansive core of fruit. There is plenty of the signature Bollinger oxidative style in this rich, enveloping Champagne. Once again the Special Cuvee is one of the best Champagnes in its price range. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2015.

Connoisseurs' Guide

60% Pinot Noir; 25% Chardonnay; 15% Pinot Meunier. All Bolly in its toasty, chalky, slightly angular but powerful way, this wine reminds of the company's "Grande Annee" in its fairly bold approach. Frothy and insistent in its bubbles and tasty, rich, toasty, stony and vanillin all at the same time, this is Champagne with a purpose, and, in this case, it works without being over the top in any dimension.

Vinous / Antonio Galloni

Pale yellow. Toasty aromas of apple and pear nectar are complemented by hints of toffee, honey and orange zest. Full and expansive on the palate, offering ripe orchard and pit fruit flavors and an undercurrent of smoky minerals and buttered toast. Smooth and gently spicy on the clinging, nicely focusd finish.
