While the famous 007 agent prefers a martini instead of champagne, he certainly doesn’t mind when he enjoys a glass of quality sparkling wine from time to time, like Bollinger…
In fact, the famed champagne brand has nearly celebrated forty years of collaborating with James Bond, and that is exactly what he plans to celebrate with a special edition bottle, inspired by the 1979 movie – Moonraker.
The first bottle of Bollinger Champagne, along with Agent 007, appeared on the Moonraker stage, making it the perfect muse for this interesting, celebratory release.
Moonraker 2007 Magnum, as it is called, pays tribute to the first Bollinger movie in which James Bond was given a truly unusual mission in space. The champagne comes in an exclusive decanter, which is made of copper and wood veneer and is the work of Eric Bertes. Styled in resemblance to the iconic Moonraker space shuttle, the special edition features a 2007 Magnum bottle of Bollinger, complete with a Saint Louis crystal ice kibble. Each pack of this edition is individually numbered, priced at $ 5,739.
Commenting on this important occasion, Etienne Bizot, Société Jacques Bollinger CEO said: “It brings me an immense amount of pride to be celebrating 40 years of partnership between Bollinger and James Bond, it is a testament to the friendship started in 1979, between my father Christian Bizot and James Bond producer Cubby Broccoli. A friendship based on our shared values such as excellence and elegance.”
The limited edition sparkling wine will be officially unveiled in Paris on November 7, and in addition, Bollinger will also offer 007 Limited Edtion Millesime 2011 in addition to Magnum, next year.
