Hints of pears, pastry crust and hazelnut lead to an expansive core of fruit. There is plenty of the signature Bollinger oxidative style in this rich, enveloping Champagne. Once again the Special Cuvee is one of the best Champagnes in its price range. This is Lot L114501. Disgorged April 26, 2011. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2015.

Lots of evolution on the nose. Lively and complete. Ready now – unlike the Krug tasted immediately beforehand. Fresh and well balanced. Complete. [ Source: http://www.jancisrobinson.com/tastings/search?keywords=Bollinger%20Special%20Cuvée&query_field=title_t-country_t-regions_txt&perpage=20 ]
