NV Bollinger Brut Special Cuvee
Grape Type: Champagne Blend

(60% pinot noir, 25% chardonnay and 15% pinot meunier; L1214420): Bright yellow. A complex bouquet evokes poached pear, Meyer lemon, chalky minerals and toasty lees. Fleshy pear and honey flavors show very good depth, picking up refreshing citrus pith and mineral nuances with air. Rich but energetic, with strong finishing cut and lingering spiciness.

I love champagne since my first tasting , 20 years ago.
But this vintage and especially Bollinger is one of the best.
Powerful, charming, glamourous, wonderful !!
A very nice bottle
Nothing to scoff at here.
Bond was Right!
As a novice wine drinker, I find most sparkling to be either too "tart" or flavorless. This one's a winner - good "body," flavour, fine finish

almost as good as veuve ciquot
I had forgotten to pu this on my profile when it was reccomended to me in a matchback. They love this in England. I think it is just a touch more....maybe slate-y is the right word, than the Veuve Cliquot. I like it very much, but I'm sticking with Pommery Brut Royal, Roderer, and Veuve Cliquot for the time being.

Golden straw, steady stream of medium bubbles. Ripe and mature aromas of macerated red fruits and toffee. Quite rich, yet, elegantly balanced and showing surprising verve in the mouth. Long pinot noir-like (berries and earth) finsh. Wonderful style for food.
Fills the mouth with strong, assertive flavors that are a bit too abrasive for me.
France is the fountainhead of the grape varieties most craved by
North American wine drinkers: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir,
Syrah, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc. In fact, these grapes are widely
referred to as "international" varieties because they have been planted and
imitated all over the world.
