So where does this differ or diverge to acclimatize the Special designation. Is it the extra $10? Might it just be...

Special Cuvée Bolly is classic for the house: powerful, presence, prestige. This is a blend of 60/25/15 pinot noir/...

Always impeccable, this wine is a model for non-vintage brut. More consistent and structured than the average,...

Outstanding Champagne, soft mousse and fine pearls. Pale golden in color. Intense and complex nose of toast, smoke, citrus and framboise. Autolitic in character. A rich walnut and almond note comes though from the back-blending technique. The house apparently holds cru classe wines in magnum to age for ten to fifteen years which are blended into the special cuvée. Creamy and robust champagne, very food friendly. Long length. Serious fizz with a unique individuality.

This Champagne is just fantastic. It is beautifully integrated with great acidity and a long finish. There's so much going on in this sparkling gem. The aroma has lots of baked apple and bread but to those who don't enjoy the yeastiness of Champagne will enjoy this wine. The palate offers so many flavours and softness without overpowering yeast. This wine is definitely joining my collection...if it'll last that long. Yum!!
