WINE: BOLLINGER Special Cuvee Brut NV

Type: Champagne
Origin: France
Approx Cost: $65

Much of Bollinger’s appeal to me is that its taste is defined. There are plenty of other champagnes that are toasty with heavy biscuit notes, but none as elegant and well-rounded as a Bollinger.

Mid straw; excellent bead and mousse; that recognisable Bollinger toastiness with some overripe fruit. Refreshing.

One of the best NVs out there. Also one of the most expensive, so it’s a tough call about wanting to constantly drink it.
