Sensations

A wonderful aromatic complexity

Special Cuvée is the fruit of a precise blend of several harvest and above all of reserve wines, which lend the wine all its structure and make it a reference of the Bollinger style.

    Mouth-filling creaminess, plus quite an imposing and powerful structure.

  • 91 /100

    Powerful on the nose, quite marked by the red fruit notes of Pinot Noir. The beautiful, vinous structure is envelopped by an ample dosage, the structure dries out a little on the finish.
