NV Bollinger "Special Cuvee" Brut Champagne (Champagne, France)

Varietal: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier

Region: Ay, Champagne, France

96 Points, Decanter 

"60% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay, 15% Meunier sourced from more than 300 crus, including 85% grands and premiers crus; 15% fermented in old oak barrels. The complexity and richness of "Special Cuvee" is unparalleled among the entry non-vintage blends of every Champagne house, short of ascending to the mesosphere of Krug. Its grand recipe explains why, built on incredible depth of 50%-60% reserves. Triumphant complexity is a given at Bollinger, but it's the dynamic freshness and vitality that really set it apart as one of the most affordable Champagne benchmarks."
