Yum. Yum. Why does he champagne style I prefer. Full-bodied, yeasty and toasty and screaming of baked lemon goods. I much prefer this to the lighter, more floral Champagnes out there.

Value for money - as always with Bollinger:) Had it with a "Toast Skagen"; roasted toast with schrimps and whitefish roe. Everybody should always have a bottle of Bollinger in the fridge!"

($60; 60% pinot noir, 25% chardonnay and 15% pinot meunier; L017208): Light yellow. Lively aromas of lemon zest, orange, white flower and minerals. Fresh and incisive, with more citrus and chalky character than I expect from this bottling, which ... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Champagne Blend wine from Champagne in France. N.V.

A rich, smoky Champagne, with hints of marzipan and fennel seed accenting honeyed malt, bread dough, baked apple and gingersnap flavors. It s all focused by intense acidity, which meshes beautifully into the layers of flavor and refined texture, with a lingering finish.- According to the Wine Spectator

25% chardonnay, 15% pinot meunier, 60% pinot noir. Deep golden straw in color with a slow persistent bead. Aromas of spicy sandalwood emerge, followed by toast, honey and mead. This is a robust, masculine Champagne with intense flavors of wood and ca... Chuck Hayward. A Champagne Blend wine from Champagne in France. N.V. Bollinger Special Cuvee 750ml

Bollinger's collect of reserve wines allows them to make a non-vintage cuvée that has more depth, richness and complexity than most others. I'd serve it with fried chicken - those bubbles cut through the richness. Or with smoked salmon lox with a fresh bagel on a Sunday morning.

Scents of apple blossoms and cream set this on a bright white line of flavor, subtly rich, brisk and refreshing. It's unfettered by any earthiness but chalk. A great release of Special Cuvée: Bollinger in top form.

A big, brash wine, this earns its sophistication with a contrast of red fruits, mineral salinity and Meyer lemon bitterness. This is smoky and firm, following a crisp line. This is a great wine for fish, whether a salmon mousse or a sea bass baked in a salt crust.
