CHAMPAGNE BOLLINGER ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS FOR THE FESTIVE SEASON
The festive season is around the corner, the most magical time of the year when there is so much to celebrate, and nothing says celebration quite like Champagne.
So, why not pop open a bottle of Champagne Bollinger, the epitome of sophistication and distinguished elegance. After all, Champagne aficionados worldwide including the British Royal Court, the delightful Absolutely Fabulous duo Patsy and Edna, and of course James Bond, a man of impeccable taste, all embrace Bollinger as their Champagne of choice, so why shouldn’t you?
There really is a lot that’s special about Bollinger’s Brut Special Cuvée, an icon among non-vintage Champagnes. That’s why it has become the signature bottling of the Bollinger estate, one of the world’s most revered Champagne Houses. It is a blend of the three Champagne varieties, 60% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Meunier from mainly Grand or Premier Cru vineyards, symbolic of exceptional quality. It also includes ‘reserve’ wines from previous vintages to add flavour and weight to the sophisticated blend.
The Bollinger Special Cuvée displays an intense golden colour, very fine bubbles and a beautiful aromatic complexity: roasted apples and ripe peaches with gentle citrus nuances. Full and expansive on the palate, this is an intense, very elegant and refined creamy cuvée with pear and brioche flavours and notes of fresh walnuts with a long refreshing finish.
This really is an absolutely fabulous Champagne that can be served for any special occasion as well as for afternoon tea, at a picnic, as a pre-dinner drink or as an ideal accompaniment to sushi, prawns and crayfish, cured ham or sliced, seared beef fillet.
Champagne Bollinger Special Cuvée, packaged in an elegant gift box, is available nationally for approximately R1100.
