There is plenty of the signature Bollinger oxidative style in this rich, enveloping Champagne. Once again the Special Cuvee is one of the best Champagnes in its price range.-Robert ParkerRockets-to-the-Sky old style without question the top quality champagne. This is lovely, big stuff. Founded in 1829, Bollinger has enjoyed a rich and distinctive history. The Bollinger style is one of both richness and finesse, aided in the non-vintage Special Cuvee by partial vinification in barrel and an extraordinary collection of reserve wines.
