Bollinger 94 Point Brut Special Cuvee Gift Set with 2 Champagne Glasses
Champagne Bollinger unveils its new tasting glass, a tribute to Madame Bollinger. The Elisabeth glass results from a partnership between the House's oenological team, under the leadership of its cellar master Gilles Descôtes, and Lehmann Glass, this new glass has been designed to enhance the aromas of Bollinger's wines. The base of the bowl is wider, in the spirit of still wine glasses, to encourage the development of aromas. The top of the glass is narrower, in the spirit of champagne flutes, to best capture these aromas by concentrating them.
Wine Gift Set Includes:
- Bollinger Brut Special Cuvee
A golden color, distinctive of black grape varieties. Very fine bubbles. On the nose, it has a beautiful aromatic complexity, ripe fruit and spicy aromas, with hints of roasted apples, apple compote and peaches. On the palate, there is a subtle combination of structure, length and vivacity. The bubbles are like velvet. Flavors of pear, brioche and spicy aromas, notes of fresh walnut.
Rated 94 Points: Wilfred Wong
- Two flutes in a festive gift box.
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
In 1829, Champagne Bollinger introduced an instantly recognizable, dry, toasty style that connoisseurs around the globe have coveted ever since. Six generations of the Bollinger family have maintained that trademark style, and Bollinger is one of the rare Grande Marque houses to be owned, controlled and managed by the same family since it was founded.
With 399 acres of vineyards situated in the best Grands Crus and Premiers Crus villages, Bollinger relies on its own estate for nearly two-thirds of its grape requirements, including the Pinot Noir that gives its Champagne its distinctive roundness and elegance. Bollinger is one of a select few houses that can control the quality of its grape supply so carefully.
Bollinger is renowned for its stringent quality standards. It adheres to traditional methods, including individual vinification of each marc and cru, barrel fermentation (it is the last Champagne house to employ a full-time cooper) and extra-aging on the lees prior to disgorgement.
Members of the British Royal Court were among the first to embrace Bollinger’s unmistakable quality, and Queen Victoria made Bollinger the exclusive purveyor to the Court by Royal Warrant in 1884. Besides royalty, loyal devotees have included heads of state, celebrities and even famous fictional characters: Agent 007, James Bond, demands the exclusive Champagne Bollinger.
