VinePair featured the release of the Champagne Bollinger Special Cuvée 007 Limited Edition. The story offers background on Bollinger’s 40+ year partnership with the Broccoli family, producer’s of the James Bond franchise, as well as details on the bottle.
The writer notes, “since 1829, Bollinger Champagne House has been producing champagne with a “powerful, sophisticated style.” The latest bottle release captures these same traits of the famous fictional spy, designed by Bond photographer Greg Williams. Each gift box features a silhouette of Bond standing beside his classic Aston Martin DB5.”

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.
