Delivery Details

Bollinger Special cuvée Non Vintage Champagne 1200cl is Bollinger's benchmark wine. Bollinger only produces two different blends; that designed for the Special cuvée, and that which will become Grande Annee. Following the harvest period, Bollinger's decisions on blending are not made before January. The blend for the Special cuvée is an ideal version of the classic Champagne blend, using the different grapes of a given year from a variety of crus, with the addition of older, reserve wines.

This blend necessarily incorporates subtle variations each year whilst remaining consistent to a style. It is, therefore, the hardest of all to make.

  • Cured Meat
  • Fish
  • Parmesan
  • Seafood
  • Shellfish
  • White Meat
Grape: Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir
A fine combination of palate weight and elegance, vinosity and length. Very dry, but with toasty flavours in the mouth and round, richly flavoured, full-bodied and mature characteristics.

The Special Cuvée Champagne contains the full expression of the Bollinger style and the House feels it should be judged on this - its benchmark wine.

Boxes for the large format bottles, whilst attractive, are considered to be protective in nature and therefore any damage to these in transit is not eligible for replacement nor refund.
