Thrillist has highlighted Champagne Bollinger in a story titled, You Can Drink Like 007 With This New James-Bond Inspired Champagne. The writer cheekily notes that when James Bond isn’t drinking a martini, he’s sipping on Champagne Bollinger! The story highlights the 40-year history between James Bond and Champagne Bollinger, before noting that the House is celebrating the franchise’s latest installment, No Time to Die, with a limited-edition Bond bottle. Read the story HERE to learn more about the 2007 vintage blanc de noirs wine and the stunningly sleek packaging. An excerpt from the piece is below as well.
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).
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.
