Bollinger Special Cuvee 007
In celebration of over 40 years of partnership as the Official Champagne of 007 and the upcoming movie No Time To Die, Champagne Bollinger are producing a limited edition gift box that brings together two icons. The signature cuvée of Champagne Bollinger: Special Cuvée and the legendary British secret agent James Bond.
Special Cuvée is the result of the delicate blending between harvest grapes and a majority of reserve wines, part of which have been aged in magnums for up to 10 years.
The house style of Bollinger is one of the most distinctive - fresh yet with a yeasty richness and full-bodied.
The famous house of Mme Lily Bollinger produces a mighty, full-bodied Champagne of great class. Delightfully pale gold in colour, the mousse is light and persistent. Densely packed apple and pear fruits give way to a noticeably creamy, caramel-like finish.
In 1911, Georges Bollinger’s British agent gave him the idea for the name Special Cuvée - “special” written the English way, without an accent. He thought the French expression “Brut sans année” was no match for such a subtle champagne… More than a hundred years later, the name of Bollinger’s key figure champagne still symbolizes both its expertise and its history.
Special Cuvée is the result of the delicate blending between harvest grapes and a majority of reserve wines, including some, aged in magnums for more than 15 years in Bollinger's cellars. The blend is 60% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay, 15% Meunier. Over 85% Grands and Premiers crus.
Special Cuvée is perfect shared among friends, for a simple and meaningful moment. It is the champagne we give to the people we love and who love nice things. To enhance its unique style, bouquet and aromas, Special Cuvée is best served between 8 and 10°C. You can enjoy Special Cuvée right away, or choose to age it in your cellar.
This fuller style makes it an excellent choice to match with food. Any fish, especially sushi and sashimi. Seafood: shrimp, prawn, crayfish, grilled lobster. Poultry and white meat. Parmesan, good cured ham.
