Wine Advocate, Robert Parker 91 Points - The NV Brut Special Cuvee is fabulous. Hints of pears, pastry crust and hazelnut lead to an expansive core of fruit. There is plenty of the signature Bollinger oxidative style in this rich, enveloping Champagne. Once again the Special Cuvee is one of the best Champagnes in its price range. […] Bollinger is of course one of the great names in Champagne. The Special Cuvee is typically one of my favorite wines in its price range.
