About Bollinger:

In 1911, Georges Bollinger's British agent gave him the idea for the name Special Cuvée - 'special' written the English way, without an accent. He thought the French expression 'Brut sans année' was no match for such a subtle champagne. More than a hundred years later, the name of Bollinger's key figure champagne still symbolizes both its expertise and its history.
