Champagne Bollinger Special Cuvée Brut NV

Champagne, FranceSpecial Cuvée Bolly is classic for the house: powerful, presence, prestige. It is a blend of 60/25/15 pinot noir/ chardonnay/ pinot meunier, over 85 percent of which is Grand and Premier Crus, and with a dose of reserve wines up to 15 years old. Up to fifty percent of this cuvée will have been fermented in oak casks. And all of this explains the density and power of Special Cuvée. Toasted brioche, hazelnuts, cherry, baked pears and rich cream on an expansive and full palate, carried by the firm, citrus acidity and lingering with subtle spices. If you're a fan of more opulent styles or looking for something to match to richer proteins, you'd be hard-pressed to find an NV finer than this.Tasted: 05 December 2016Tasted by: Prices: BC 89.99 BCLS MB 80.25 Manitoba's Liquor Mart ON 78.95 LCBO QC 76.25 SAQ PEI 74.95 PEI Liquor NB 79.95 ANBL NS 79.95 NSLC Producer: Bollinger, ChampagneDistributors: Trialto Wine Group
