The Bollinger style, density and subtlety
It was Georges Bollinger's British agent who gave him the name Special Cuvée in 1911. Indeed, he finds the expression “Brut sans Année” inappropriate for a champagne of such subtlety… More than a hundred years later, the name of the champagne emblematic of Bollinger know-how still contains its entire history.

About this house
Since 1829, the House of Bollinger has been producing great champagnes with a powerful, refined and complex style. These virtuoso wines are the result of a constant quest for perfection: there is no room for guesswork at Bollinger. Bollinger is constantly striving for perfection, right down to the smallest detail.
An uncompromising independence of spirit, in the service of a distinction without ostentation: this elegance from the Champagne region has won over the British Crown, which, since 1884, has awarded the House the very prestigious Royal Warrant, the mark of the official suppliers to the Court.
The Perfect Agreement
Between the Champagne and its dish
This Special Cuvee of the House of Bollinger is best enjoyed as a starter with fish and shellfish dishes such as shrimp, lobster, grilled lobster...
This champagne also goes well with all kinds of fish, especially sushi and sashimi, but also with poultry and white meat, or large dry hams.
As far as cheese is concerned, this Special Cuvée from the House of Bollinger goes perfectly with "Reggiano" Parmesan cheese aged for 24 months.
To match perfectly with the vintage La Grande Année 2014, the chef Julien Boscus of the restaurant Origines, in the heart of the 8th district of Paris, proposes here white truffle gnocchi, homemade ricotta flavored with black pork ventrèche, mushroom emulsion.
