Bollinger Spécial Cuvée Brut Gift Boxed
"Benchmark Bollinger, fresh and vivacious, yet wonderfully resonant with all the depth and triumphant complexity that set Special Cuvee apart. A universe of complexity spans light years of black cherries, plums, fresh lemon zest, red apple, even the richness of ripe peach and fig. Deep reserves allow primary fruit to speak articulately, reverberating softly with Bollinger's signature notes of ginger, dried nectarine, mixed spice, toast, brioche, honey and roast nuts. For all this, it upholds achingly pristine citrus zest freshness throughout, riding on a vibrant acid line, culminating in a masterful crescendo of fine, frothing, salt and iodine-infused minerality. Black cherry fruit lingers long and profound. One of the finest entry NVs on the planet."
