Special Cuvée is the result of the delicate blending between harvest grapes and a majority of reserve wines, including some aged in magnums for more than 15 years in Bollinger's cellars. Blend: 60% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay, 15% Meunier with over 85% Grands and Premiers crus.
In 1911, Georges Bollinger's British agent gave him the idea for the name Special Cuvée - “special” written the English way, without an accent. He thought the French expression “Brut sans année” was no match for such a subtle champagne... More than a hundred years later, the name of Bollinger's key figure champagne still symbolizes both its expertise and its history.
The Bollinger vineyard covers 164 hectares, most of which are classified Grand or Premier cru. Pinot Noir predominates, a demanding grape variety with an intense character which forms the backbone of the Bollinger style.
