Bollinger Balthazar Special Cuvée Champagne NV 1200cl Red Gift Box
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.Read more...
