Bollinger Champagne Brut Speciale Cuvee France Champagne White 2012
Length/Type of Fermentation: The first fermentation takes place in small oak casks, lot-by-lot, cru-by-cru, and grape variety with all crus and grape varieties segregated. This allows Bollinger to use a very strict selection process. Bollinger only uses old casks (5 years or older) to ensure that neither tannin nor oak flavors are imparted to the wines. Length/Type of Aging: Once the wine is bottled, the carbonic fermentation and cellar aging are conducted under natural cork for a minimum of five years, more than twice as long as required by Appellation rules.
External Reviews for Bollinger Champagne Brut Speciale Cuvee France Champagne White
A beautiful Champagne. Complex and elegant, evoking ginger, jasmine, citrus and honey aromas and flavors, accented by a biscuit and grain component coming as much from barrel fermentation as yeast aging. Very firmly structured and long. Enjoy with Asian foods or Parmesan cheese.
