Good way to kick-off the 4th on our friends new deck in progress.
The Bollinger Brut Special Cuvée is my idea of perfect balance between reductive & oxidative. Always rock solid! Great pair with white cheeses.
Previous notes will stand.

Crisp, delicious champagne in a spectacular Bond-themed bottle and case (Bond 25 - No Time To Die). Big kudos to my wife for a spectacular Valentine’s Day present! — 4 months ago

A few wines from last week’s 4th Friday event!
I was craving some bubbles, so I opened this. For Bollinger, I expected this to be a touch more rich and powerful. What I got was a fairly elegant and finesse driven rosé champagne. Very red berry fruit driven upfront with some strawberry cream, toasted biscuit, and sea salted rhubarb fruit. So energetic on the palate but a fine balance between blanc de noir style vs rosé. Gummy red fruits with some strawberry shortbread and some sweetness toward the finish. I think these are likely better closer to release (as opposed to their special Cuvee sibling, which can be marvelous with a touch of age). — 5 months ago
