I visited Bollinger yesterday morning and marvelled at its Special Cuvée Brut just as I marvelled over it when I visited a year ago. Again it scored among the best entry non-vintage wines in Champagne. The recipe is astounding: A blend of 245 wines, more than eighty percent of which are grand cru and premier cru. A very high fifty-five percent is reserve wine (older vintages) aged in magnum under cork and disgorged by hand. It spends a minimum of three years on lees in the Bollinger cellars. No other champagne at this price has such a recipe. 95 Points. - Tyson Stelzer.
