Special Cuvée launched for the release of No Time To Die
In celebration of over 40 years of partnership as the Official Champagne of 007 and the upcoming film No Time To Die, Champagne Bollinger has produced a limited edition gift box that brings together three icons: Bollinger’s signature Special Cuvée, the Aston Martin DB5 and James Bond.
The limited edition gift box features the silhouette of James Bond alongside his Aston Martin DB5. The colourway of the gift box echoes the silver birch finish of the DB5. The Bollinger lettering and logos are depicted in gold and the iconic Special Cuvée bottle has been adapted to feature a black and gold neck collar with a 007 blazon.
Champagne Bollinger worked with celebrated photographer Greg Williams, for the soon to be released Special Cuvée 007 Limited Edition campaign, featuring his signature cinematic style that also appears in the No Time To Die campaign.
Bollinger is one of the last remaining independent Champagne houses. Family-managed since 1889, Bollinger maintains 164 hectares of vineyard most of which are classified Grand or Premier Cru. Pinot Noir predominates and forms the backbone of the Bollinger style distinguished by elegance and complexity dating back to 1829. The House lets its wines mature for twice as long as the appellation requirement. This is not out of vanity, but because a great wine needs the luxury of time to develop its full character.
Before being blended the wines are fermented separating each cru and grape variety, in 100 or 120 hl stainless steel tanks. This improves the control of the fermentation process, and enhances the quality of the wines used for blending the Special Cuvée. In certain years, wines fermented in barrels will be used in the final blend.
Left to mature on the lees for three years, this is a full-flavoured, classic Champagne made mainly from Grands and Premier Cru areas with the addition of 5% to 10% of their unique reserve wines.
Pair with all fish, especially sushi and sashimi, shellfish such as shrimp, prawns, crayfish and grilled lobster, poultry and white meat, cashews, parmesan or prosciutto.
Pinot Noir 60%, Chardonnay 25%, Pinot Meunier 15%
