There is always something extraordinary about the Bollinger Special Cuvée Champagne Brut. I have savored the wines throughout my 40 years in my professional wine career, and the wine has always performed well. It begins with a refined mousse and entices with aromas of bread dough, ripe apples, crème brûlée, as well as mineral accents. While it is full in its body and textures, its finish stays long, zesty, and memorable. Drinks well now, although today's bottle could use another half a dozen years in the cellar.

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.
Vibrant and well-knit, this layers a refined texture and mouthwatering acidity with a rich profile of dried white cherry, raw almond, mandarin orange peel and smoke-tinged minerality. Finely knit and focused, presenting a creamy, spiced finish.
