Champagne Bollinger Special Cuvée Brut NV

Champagne, FranceThe Bollinger house style is rich and powerful. The blend is 60/25/15 pinot noir/ chardonnay/ pinot meunier, with a small amount of reserve wine spanning 15 years. Fifty percent of this cuvée ferments in oak casks, and you can’ t miss the rich, toasted hazelnut nose that draws you into the glass. Add some red fruits, and creamy texture, and you end up with a long, expansive food-worthy sparkler with equally compelling acidity that captures the imagination. As good as this is now, you can effortlessly age it a decade. Also available in 1.5 litre and .375 litre formats.Tasted: 06 October 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 75.99 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
