Bollinger Methuselah Cuvée Champagne 6 Ltrs – 8 bottles
Alcohol Volume: 12%
Tasting Notes: Both distinctive and unique, Special Cuvee offers a simple and rare pleasure. Dazzling at the first encounter, consistently endearing when rediscovered. Tasting Special Cuvee is the proof of the power and finesse of Pinot Noir. A fine combination of palate weight and elegance, vinosity and length.
Food Pairing: Perfect chilled as an aperitif, or served with plain sushi, pata negra ham, lobster,
scallops, grilled sea bass, quail, or cheeses such as Chaource or Brie.
Bollinger uses only the ‘cuvée’ juice in the making of Special Cuvée. Depending on vintage, 100% of Grand Cru’s and part of the Premier Cru’s are barrel fermented. Bollinger uses small stainless steel tanks to conduct the fermentation of the other cru’s.
Special Cuvée is a blend of wines coming from the most recent harvest, and also wines from previous harvests, including reserve wines held in magnum.
After second fermentation, Special Cuvée then ages in cellars for at least 3 years. After riddling and disgorging Special Cuvée then rests in cellars for a minimum of 3 months prior to shipment.
