Bollinger and Bond is one of the most enduring marketing partnerships in motion picture history. Champagne Bollinger is featured in almost every Bond movie since Live And Let Die. The literary James Bond first encounters Bollinger in the book Diamonds Are Forever, when Tiffany Case sends a quarter-bottle to his cabin on the Queen Elizabeth. Seduction, elegance and distinction; with so many qualities in common, this is a partnership that will stand the test of time. Discover the 2009 vintage by Bollinger which has been produced solely for this James Bond Limited Edition.
On the nose the vintage boasts a refined complexity, the expression of the Grands crus and terroirs. White flowers, citrus fruit, delicately woody stewed pear with hints of vanilla, toasted aromas, hazelnut & breadcrumbs. In the mouth the wine shows a good maturity yet remains quite brisk and lively. It moves through stewed fruit, mirabelleplum, quince paste and honey with a finish that reminds us of bitter orange.
This unique bottle comes in a stylish metal chill box that's inspired by the Bond's iconic tuxedo and will keep your bubbly as cool as the secret agent himself.
Grands crus: Sourced exclusively from Grandscrus, the grapes selected are taken from the "cuve" to keep only the best juice
Blend: 68% Pinot Noir and 32% Chardonnay
Oak barrels: produced in small old oak barrels so the wines don't taste of wood or tannins
Fermentation: The second fermentation and slow maturation in the cellars occur under natural cork to preserve the freshness while protecting them against oxidation
