"96 Points. Bollinger is second only to Krug with the depth and complexity of its reserve. The accent is firmly on pinot noir from Premier and Grand Cru sources. Small wonder it is of towering power and complexity capable of handling any food match. Exceptional bargain. $80.00 Date when tasted: 01 Nov 2019" - James Halliday, Top 100 Wines Of 2019.
"95 Points. Special Cuvee is a triumph of complexity and balance, at once rich and full, fresh and fine. Pinot noir (sixty percent) takes the lead with its rich fruit mince spice complexity, followed by the precise lemon zest freshness of chardonnay (twenty-five percent). Reserve wines bring Bollinger's signature yeasty, gingery notes, while barrel complexity adds a creamy texture and hints of brioche, nougat and almond. The finish pulls it all together into a masterfully controlled crescendo that lingers clean and long, with outstanding persistence and excellent, textural minerality. This wine has been precisely on form every time and everywhere I have tasted it this year. Price: $100"- Tyson Stelzer, The Champagne Guide.
Their ethos is ‘great wine first, Champagne second’. Bollinger’s charter includes use of first press only, barrel fermentation and storage of reserves, ‘aromatic bombs’ in magnum under cork. Long lees-aging is critical: 4 years for Special Cuvée and up to 12 for the precious R.D. All prestige cuvées are hand crafted at every stage.
Over five generations the family have acquired vineyards in highly prized Grand and Premier Crus, supplying 65% of their own needs. Their vineyard sustainability was recognised in 2012 with a certification of ‘High Environmental Value’.
