Champagne Bollinger…Absolutely Fabulous


Champagne Bollinger is one of the world’s most revered Houses producing outstanding Champagnes with character, distinguished by elegance and complexity since 1829.


There is a lot that’s ‘Special’ about Champagne Bollinger’s Special Cuvée, an icon among non-vintage Champagnes. The signature bottling of the House of Bollinger, it is a blend of 60% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Meunier from Grand or Premier Cru vineyards of exceptional quality. The Special Cuvée also includes the addition of reserve wine, which is still wine from previous vintages that is aged in magnums in the Bollinger cellar. This addition enriches the cuvée, adding flavour and weight to this sophisticated blend.

Champagne Bollinger Special Cuvée displays a crystalline pale straw colour of great vibrance, very fine bubbles and a beautiful aromatic complexity: roasted apples and ripe peaches with gentle citrus nuances. Full and expansive on the palate, this is an intense, very elegant and refined creamy cuvée with pear and brioche flavours and notes of fresh walnuts with a long refreshing finish.

The Special Cuvée is an absolutely fabulous Champagne that can be served for any special occasion as well as for afternoon tea, at a picnic, as a pre-dinner drink or as an ideal accompaniment to sushi, prawns and crayfish, good cured ham or sliced, seared beef fillet.

Champagne Bollinger Special Cuvée, packaged in an elegant gift box, is available nationally for approximately R960.



Champagne Bollinger Rosé is a blend of 62% Pinot Noir, 24% Chardonnay and 14% Pinot Meunier from 85% Grand or Premier Cru vineyards of exceptional quality. This is a highly polished Champagne, an aromatic, perfectly balanced Rosé of great complexity and sophistication.

Champagne Bollinger Rosé entices with a beautiful salmon pink colour, a velvet mousse and fresh, pure redcurrant, cherry and strawberry aromas, the palate is rich and refined, perfectly combining power with freshness, with a silky texture and juicy wild berry flavours, a touch of creaminess and a lasting fresh berry finish.
