The relationship between the most glamorous super spy, James Bond and one of the world’s finest Champagnes, Bollinger dated back from 1973 Live And Let Die, when producers of the film sought a wine to match Bond’s impeccable taste and refined personality. Champagne Bollinger continues to appear in other Bond films and passes through the hands of Roger Moore to Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and now Daniel Craig.
This year to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the most famous secret agent, 007 and his returning to the big screen in Skyfall, French champagne house Bollinger teamed up with Spark Design Agency to launch a special limited edition gift box containing one of Bollinger’s best vintage Champagnes in 100 years, the 2002 La Grande Annee Brut Vintage.
Bollinger 2002 La Grande Annee Brut Vintage is produced from the best harvest, and on average is blend of 65% Pinot noir and 35% Chardonnay. Each wine is individually fermented in oak casks prior to blending.
Stylish presentation box has been created in the shape of James Bond’s famous Walther PPK silencer with the handgrip’s guilloche pattern on it, which is also repeated on the bottle’s cap and label.
If you want to buy this perfect collector’s item, better hurry up while it’s still available at The Whisky Exchange for £125 ($200) or at Harrods for £150 ($240).
