About: Created in 1911 the denomination Special Cuvée was inspired by illustrious wine lover and bon viveur William Folks who felt it was an insult to simply call this great wine non vintage!
The blend for the Special Cuvée is an ideal version of the classic Champagne blend, using the different grapes of a given year from a variety of crus, with the addition of older, reserve wines. This blend necessarily incorporates subtle variations each year whilst remaining consistent to a style.
Tasting notes: A golden colour, distinctive of black grape varieties ; very fine bubbles. On the nose: a beautifully aromatic with ripe fruit and spicy aromas; hints of roasted apples, apple compote and peaches. In the mouth it is subtle with good structure, length and vivacity, pear, brioche and spicy aromas, notes of fresh walnut.
