Best Products has compiled a round up of 11 stellar sparking wines and Champagne to pop open this holiday season. As if we need any excuse, the writer notes that Champagne is “a classic, crowd-pleasing, and food-friendly beverage choice perfect for virtually any special occasion.” Champagne Bollinger Special Cuvée is among the wines featured, and described as “slightly spicier and more robust than other Champagne varieties, this bubbly has a rich golden hue, which is distinctive of black grape varieties.” The piece also explains that while Bollinger is perfect on its own, it is a complete star when paired with foods, such as “spicy charcuterie, meatier appetizers, and sharp cheese.” Read more about the Bollinger write up and other recommendations HERE
From vineyard to bottling, Special Cuvée sees such an extraordinary level of care and attention, it is difficult to place within the non-vintage or, really, any Champagne category. It is a Champagne that stands apart. Within one bottle, all the complexity of flavor, texture and pleasure that Champagne can offer. Special Cuvée is truly a journey of devotion from Bollinger.
Bollinger is one of the rare Grande Marques that’s still family owned. Known for its rich, elegant and polished style of Champagne, their outstanding wines are the result of rigorous attention to detail and incredibly labor-intensive practices that few houses are willing to undertake. Underscoring its excellence, Bollinger has remained British secret agent James Bond's Champagne of choice since 1973.
