Wine with Wanda highlighted Champagne Bollinger in her most recent post. She highlighted the new Special Cuvée 007 Limited Edition Box, which was created to celebrate the upcoming release of No Time To Die. She offers background on Bollinger’s longstanding relationship with the Bond franchise, before adding, “Of course, the association with Bond adds an extra dash of sex appeal to Bollinger’s elegant image, but what really matters is the quality of the bubbly within the bottle.”
As she continues, “Special Cuvée is Bollinger’s flagship wine and doesn’t disappoint. True to the Bollinger style, Pinot Noir is the majority of the blend at 60%. Balanced out with 25% Chardonnay and 15% Meunier, Special Cuvée is composed primarily of reserve wines, part of which have been aged in magnum for 5-15 years. Complex, crisp, fresh, spicy, and full of finesse, it is a beautiful bubbly. Pop the cork on a bottle of Bollinger 007 Special Cuvée and unleash your international woman/man/person of mystery.”

From vineyard to bottling, Special Cuvée sees such an extraordinary level of care and attention, it is difficult to place within the non-vintage or, really, any Champagne category. It is a Champagne that stands apart. Within one bottle, all the complexity of flavour, texture and pleasure that Champagne can offer. Special Cuvée is truly a journey of devotion from Bollinger.
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.
