Professional Reviews

Burghound

BH 92
"A restrained and decidedly youthful nose features notes of apple, yeast, plenty of citrus and a whisper of quinine character. There is both good volume and intensity to the delicious and solidly complex middle weight flavors that are supported by a firm and moderately exuberant mousse that carries over to the nicely dry but not really austere finale. This is lovely and a wine that could either be held for another 3 to 5 years or enjoyed now though I would be inclined to hold it for at least 2 to 3 years first." -Allen Meadows

Robert Parker

RP 91
"Disgorged in the second half of 2019, the latest release of Bollinger's NV Brut Special Cuvée is based on the 2015 vintage, complemented by around 60% reserve wines. The wine is still quite tightly wound after its recent disgorgement, opening in the glass with notes of crisp yellow orchard fruit, freshly baked bread, clear honey and orange peel, with little sign of the nuttiness to come with bottle age. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, muscular and incipiently textural, with a deep core, ripe acids and a pinpoint mousse. This isn't the most incisive vintage of Special Cuvée, but it's powerful and vinous and will have fine gastronomic potential with a little bottle age." -Robert Parker

Decanter

"60% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay, 15% Meunier sourced from more than 300 crus, including 85% grands and premiers crus; 15% fermented in old oak barrels. The complexity and richness of Special Cuvée is unparalleled among the entry non-vintage blends of every Champagne house, short of ascending to the mesosphere of Krug. Its grand recipe explains why, built on incredible depth of 50%-60% reserves. Triumphant complexity is a given at Bollinger, but it’s the dynamic freshness and vitality that really set it apart as one of the most affordable Champagne benchmarks."

Wine Spectator

WS 92
"An elegant Champagne, tightly meshed and almost restrained up front, yet flavors of ripe black raspberry, toast, candied lemon zest and graphite slowly expand on the palate, caressed by the silky texture of the mousse. A spine of racy acidity drives the spiced finish."

Wine Enthusiast

WE 92
"Dominated, as always, by Pinot Noir and with wood fermentation and aging, this Champagne has a great poise between freshness and richness. It is intense and ripe, with apple and minerality coming together. The bottling is ready to drink."
