If you want to grab a bottle of Champagne for Christmas or New Year’s Eve, there are endless possibilities. One bottle that is relatively easy to find and is also a great value is Bollinger NV Brut Special Cuvee. It is a blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Meunier and retails for $50.
The nose has smokey notes of apple and citrus. The palate offers tastes of toasted nuts, ginger, and apple with hints of spice. It is a beautiful Champagne with fresh acidity and layers of intense flavor. One of the better Champagnes that I have found for around $50 and a great wine for you holiday celebrations!
