Leading luxury travel and lifestyle publication Departures is getting into the holiday spirit early with an online guide guide dedicated exclusively for wine lovers. The editorial team has recommended Champagne Bollinger’s limited edition crystal set created for James Bond’s SPECTRE. The set of 307 pieces features a breathtaking crystal set produced by Crystal Saint Louis and holds a magnum of R.D. 1988, for $10,000.The writer notes that there “a few are still available (you can also find the champagne on its own for much less). Look for notes of preserved lemon and apricot in this 1988 vintage.” He also adds that readers should be on the look out for Bollinger’s new limited edition releases coming out later this fall for No Time To Die, which will be in theaters in April 2020.

A small revolution in the world of Champagne. In 1967, Bollinger releases R.D. 1952. There is no comparable Champagne on the market at the time. This bold and brilliant Champagne takes the pillars of what makes Champagne Bollinger so unique, and pushes them to their ultimate level. It is, very simply, a masterpiece.
Bollinger is one of the rare Grande Marques that’s still family owned. Known for its rich, elegant and polished style of Champagne, their outstanding wines are the result of rigorous attention to detail and incredibly labor-intensive practices that few houses are willing to undertake. Underscoring its excellence, Bollinger has remained British secret agent James Bond's Champagne of choice since 1973.
