As a long standing partner of the James Bond films, Champagne house Bollinger has commemorated the forthcoming release of SPECTRE with a special 007 limited edition of its 2009 vintage.
This Champagne was aged for 6 years in old oak barrels, twice as long as the stipulated by law and it shows in the deep golden colour.
After bottling, the second fermentation and slow maturation in the cellars occur under natural cork. This preserves the freshness of the wines while protecting them against oxidation.
On the palate this 2009 Vintage has white flowers, citrus fruits and stewed pear with hints of vanilla, breadcrumbs and toasted aromas. It shows good maturity yet remains quite brisk and lively and has a lengthy finish that reminds us of bitter orange.
This Bollinger 2009 Vintage is exclusive to the 007 Spectre Edition. Presented in an elegant dark metal chill box and styled on James Bond’s tuxedo.
A truly fantastic gift for any Bond or Bollinger fan, you can buy it online in the UK from 31DOVER.
