Bollinger Special Cuvee NV Gift Boxed
Bollinger was founded in Aÿ, Champagne in 1829, quickly establishing itself as a champagne house of distinction as demonstrated by holding the British Royal Warrant since 1884. In 1911, Georges Bollinger’s British agent gave him the idea for the name Special Cuvée - “special” written the English way, without an accent. More than a hundred years later, the golden, velvety Bollinger Special Cuvée NV is more popular than ever and comes gift boxed for a special reward.
Using predominately Pinot Noir (60%) for the Bollinger Special Cuvee NV creates a beautiful depth of flavour with a rich complexity. There are toasted walnuts on the palate with zingy pear and buttery brioche making a wonderful balance of flavours. Always amazing as an aperitif and takes sushi and sashimi to a higher level.
