Bollinger Champagne 007 is a limited edition wine served in a special commemorative gift box that’s decorated with Bond film names, including Goldfinger, Moonraker, Casino Royal, Spectre, and more. As is appropriate for a Champagne inspired by a secret agent, the case opens with a covert press of a white tab, causing the glass top to slowly lift up and reveal the bottle within. The wine itself is a rare blanc de noirs, made from Pinot Noir grapes sourced from a single grand cru vineyard in Aÿ, Champagne. Impressive stuff!
Winery notes (2011 Vintage)
"This limited edition cuvée celebrates 2 important milestones. Firstly, it celebrates the historic partnership between Bollinger and Bond. Bollinger has been the exclusive Champagne partner of Bond since 1979, so 2019 marks the 40th anniversary of their relationship. Secondly, it celebrates the release of the upcoming movie, No Time to Die, which will be the 25th movie in the series (and Bollinger’s 15th Bond movie since the start of the partnership).
The fruit is sourced exclusively from the historic Grand Cru vineyard of Ay, where the house has been based since its creation in 1829. 100% Pinot Noir. Cellar aged for more than twice the time required by the appellation. Second fermentation takes place for more than 7 years on the lees in bottles with natural corks. Riddling and disgorging are performed entirely by hand.
2011 inspired the Cellar Master to create this unique Champagne made exclusively from Pinot Noir grapes sourced from the Grand Cru village of Aÿ. This is the first time that Bollinger has created a cuvée solely from this unique cru. The extraordinary harvest of 2011 produced Pinot Noir which is complex, powerful and harmonious, celebrated in this wine of great character."
