Nicknamed “Boll” by those from Champagne and “Bolly” by the English, the timeless and legendary Bollinger Champagne House forms part of a small circle of three great Champagne houses. Bollinger champagne’s style is defined through its remarkable precision, which is brought to every moment of production. With a respect for tradition, riddling done by hand, natural corks for magnum reserve bottles and the last permanent cooper in the region, excellence has symbolised Bollinger champagne culture since its creation in 1829 Aÿ. More than an art, it is a heritage.
Bollinger's uniqueness comes from its 174 hectares divided into seven main vineyards in Champagne, 85% of which are Grands Crus and Premiers Crus, making the house one of the few to produce its own grapes for its blends. Pinot Noir is the house's signature grape variety and represents 60% of the vineyard's vines.
In 1979, the prestigious Bollinger Champagne House partnered with James Bond for the 11th film in the Bond saga: Moonraker. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of this faithful collaboration, Bollinger has produced an exclusive 2007 vintage, the Bond vintage par excellence. Bollinger revisits the Moonraker space shuttle thanks to the designer, Eric Barthès, and the Saint-Louis crystal works factory. This pewter box plated with high-quality wood, available in limited edition with 407 units, contains a Saint Louis crystal bucket and a magnum of Bollinger 2007.
