The Special Cuvee Brut represents the most straightforward expression of the Bollinger house style. The blend includes up to 10% reserve wines, which may be up to fifteen years old. This gives the special cuvee complexity and structure.


"Like a fine tapestry, this weaves rich flavors of blackberry tart, lemon parfait, graphite and toasted almond together on the creamy palate. Finely honed acidity creates a vibrant thread throughout. Drink now through 2022. " -Rated 93, Wine Spectator

"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." -Rated 91, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"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." -Rated 92, Wine Enthusiast

"Bright yellow. A complex bouquet evokes poached pear, Meyer lemon, chalky minerals and toasty lees. Fleshy pear and honey flavors show very good depth, picking up refreshing citrus pith and mineral nuances with air. Rich but energetic, with strong finishing cut and lingering spiciness." -Rated 91, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
