Bollinger James Bond Limited Edition 2011
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, which will be the 25th movie in the series (and Bollinger’s 15th Bond movie since the start of the partnership).
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.
Varietals: 100% Pinot Noir
Appellation: Sourced exclusively from the historic Grand Cru vineyard of Ay, where the house has been based since its creation in 1829.
