Bollinger N/V Special Cuvee 75cl£42.75 Add to basket
Bollinger Special Cuvee Champagne is Bollinger’s Brut Non Vintage benchmark wine. Bollinger only produces two different blends; that designed for the Special cuvee, and that which will become Grande Annee. Following the harvest period, Bollinger’s decisions on blending are not made before January. The blend for the Special cuvee is an ideal version of the classic Champagne blend, using the different grapes of a given year from a variety of crus, with the addition of older, reserve wines.
This blend necessarily incorporates subtle variations each year whilst remaining consistent to a style. It is, therefore, the hardest of all to make. The Special Cuvee Champagne contains the full expression of the Bollinger style and the House.
Champagne Lallier R.015 Vintage 2015 75cl£35.00 Add to basket
An intense nose of crisp green apple leads into a very ripe, rounded, apple and lemon-fruited palate, a reflection of the warmth of the 2015 vintage that this cuvée expresses. Lallier worried that the vintage would be too warm for great Champagne, but a drop in temperatures, plus a little rain, a couple of weeks before picking rescued the freshness and maintined this wine’s vital acidity. A very approachable and seriously enjoyable vintage-character wine.>
