About this deal
Bollinger? If it is a ‘69, you were expecting me.' Moonraker, 1979. Champagne Bollinger continues more than 50 years of 007 and the Bollinger / James Bond relationship. Today Bollinger Champagne remains James Bond's favourite and bears the Royal Warrant. Vintages are produced only in exceptional years from grand and premier cru vineyards. When it comes to getting the best offers on Champagne, there are a number of tips we can recommend:
of the harvest is fermented in oak barrels, making the finished wines well-suited to extended ageing and contributing body and depth of flavour. There are only two types of blends produced, both pinot noir-dominated: the non-vintage Special Cuvée is the expression of the Bollinger house style, while the vintage-dated Grande Année, produced only in exceptional years, is designed to express the inherent character of the vintage. R.D (Recently Disgorged) is the same blend as Grande Année, kept on its lees and disgorged much later. Six generations of the Bollinger family have maintained the trademark style of their namesake Champagne and it is one of a few remaining Grand Marque houses owned, controlled and managed by the same family since the brand's founding.

Unusually for a Champagne house, Bollinger have been grape growers as well as producers from the beginning. The house charter states that 70% of grape supply must always come from the firm’s own vineyards, defining the standards of excellence that are synonymous with the Bollinger name.British people love Champagne so much that shipments of the fine fizz hit 29 million bottles in 2021, which is remarkable considering the, ahem, challenging times we're living in. We Brits love Champagne. The popping of corks, the clinking of glasses, the sweet fizz of those bubbles. It's the ultimate way to celebrate a special occasion — even if the occasion is that it's Friday night.
