Winery Notes: A golden colour, distinctive of black grape varietiesVery fine bubbles.A beautiful aromatic complexity of ripe fruit and spicy aromas, hints of roasted apples, apple compote and peaches. A subtle combination of structure, length and vivacity Bubbles like velvet. Pear, brioche and spicy aromas, notes of fresh walnut

Bollinger is of course one of the great names in Champagne. The Special Cuvee is typically one of my favorite wines in its price range, but it is the 2004 Rose La Grande Annee that steals the show this year. Bollinger is unique among Champagne houses in that the reserve wines are all bottled in magnum and with natural cork, a huge, labor-intensive effort.

A lovely, balanced Champagne, with mineral and toast notes accenting flavors of quince, green pear, white peach and verbena. Backed by firm acidity, this shows impressive texture and finesse. Like a mosaic, all the pieces come together to make a beautiful whole. Drink now through 2020. 8,000 cases imported. –AN

Richness is all in this latest release of Special Cuvée, a complex and supple blend based on red grapes (60 percent pinot noir and 15 percent meunier with the balance in chardonnay). Structured by reserve wines aged in magnum bottles, this wine’s texture unfolds with layers of flavor, from subtle Marcona almond to dark-toned apricot and brighter lemon. It’s creamy, saturated and delicious, balanced for current drinking and built to age.

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. This is Lot L114501. Disgorged April 26, 2011. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2015.
