About this video
Brandon Ford, Advanced Sommelier for Hyde Park Restaurant Group, appeared on Fox 2 Detroit to speak with the network’s anchors about sparkling wines for the holidays. He selected Champagne Bollinger Special Cuvée as one of three wines he recommends toasting with during the festive season, highlighting how the House is famous for its extended aging in oak barrels.
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.
