On the nose, the Bollinger Special Cuvée is straight forward, pire, intense, long and incredibly refined. Bollinger simply signs here the best non-vintage the Champagne region can offer.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Disgorged six months ago, the latest rendition of the NV Brut Special Cuvée was bottled in 2015, and while its core derives from the 2014 vintage, it contains fully 60% reserve wines. The wine wafts from the glass with a classic bouquet of apples, pear, walnut oil and clear honey, followed by a medium to full-bodied palate that's broad-shouldered and Pinot Noir-driven, with a pinpoint mousse, nice tension at the core and a delicately chalky finish. Gilles Descotes commented that one of his biggest challenges is finding enough wine raised in wood to make the Special Cuvée in years where Grandé Année is produced--and to that end, Bollinger is significantly expanding its barrel program to ferment even more base wine in used oak.
