There are fantastic features on Champagne Bollinger and Brewer-Clifton in the just-released Wine Spectator – the cover story is about the WS editor’s favorite picks.

Bollinger Special Cuvée is front and center in the article’s two page opening spread and Bruce Sanderson names it his Critic’s Choice, writing: “I love Champagne, and this is one of my go-to bottles for its rich, complex flavors and mouthfeel. Consistently one of the best non-vintage cuvées, it’s a full-bodied, vinous style courtesy of the high percentage of Pinot Noir (60%) in the blend, partial barrel fermentation of the base wine, and reserve wines of up to 15 years of age.”

Then one of Brewer-Clifton’s 2013 single vineyard Pinot Noirs is selected as one of just three American Pinot Noirs over $50. The Spectator notes: “It’s been more than 20 years since Greg Brewer and Steve Clifton began their quest. They’ve been on a roll of late, making our Top 10 in 2014.”
