Champagne Bollinger has been the official champagne of the James Bond franchise for 40 years and it is only right that to celebrate the unique and special relationship, the champagne house is to release a limited-edition wine dedicated to 007 on the year of its 25th instalment.
A popular brand around the world, Bollinger has been eminent, distinctive, and distinguished since 1829. Guaranteeing excellence in every bottle through the integrity of a resolutely independent family house in Aÿ and through the artisanal know-how of people dedicated to growing and blending excellence.
The House has created a limited-edition wine with a 2011 vintage inspired by the world of Bond for the upcoming release of the Daniel Craig featuring No Time To Die. The jet-black 75cl bottle is adorned with the number “25”, formed from the titles of the previous films, which are similarly etched on the glass of the wooden box.
The 2011 vintage, an atypical year, inspired Cellar Master to produce a unique bottle of champagne, created entirely from Pinot Noir from the Grand Cru village of Aÿ, where the House was first established in 1829.
This is the first time that both the vintage and village have been used exclusively by Bollinger to make a dedicated wine. The excellent 2011 harvest in Aÿ, produced complex, powerful and harmonious Pinot Noirs, fully expressed in this characterful wine.
Richard Juhlin notes: “The decision to use Pinot Noir for this 2011 vintage, exclusively from the home village of Aÿ with its mighty fruit is nothing short of brilliant. Perhaps wait about ten years until the wine has reached its peak and completely integrated its enormous fruit with the barrel notes, but the wine is already magnificent with its deep ripe aroma of Gravenstein apples, backed by fresh wooden notes. House typical and powerful.”
We are proud to stock this monumental limited edition bottle, a perfect ode to the impressive brand and something to help curb the excitement for the November release of No Time To Die
