bollinger special cuvee champagne 007box
BOTTLE WITH 007 ENSIGNIA ON IT.
In celebration of over 40 years of partnership as the Official Champagne of 007 and the upcoming film No Time To Die (2020), Champagne Bollinger has produced a limited edition gift box that brings together three icons: Bollinger's signature Special CuvÃ©e, the Aston Martin DB5 and the legendary British secret agent, James Bond.
Honouring the most perfect of partnerships, 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 CuvÃ©e bottle has been adapted to feature a black and gold neck collar with a 007 blazon.
Champagne Bollinger worked with celebrated photographer Greg Williams (who has worked on many Bond films and commercials), for the Special CuvÃ©e 007 Limited Edition campaign, featuring his signature cinematic style that also appears in the No Time To Die campaign.
A golden color, distinctive of black grape varieties. Very fine bubbles. On the nose, it has a beautiful aromatic complexity, ripe fruit, and spicy aromas, with hints of roasted apples, apple compote, and peaches. On the palate, there is a subtle combination of structure, length, and vivacity. The bubbles are like velvet. Flavors of pear, brioche and spicy aromas, notes of fresh walnut.
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.

"60% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay, 15% Meunier sourced from more than 300 crus, including 85% grands and premiers crus; 15% fermented in old oak barrels. The complexity and richness of Special CuvÃ©e is unparalleled among the entry non-vintage blends of every Champagne house, short of ascending to the mesosphere of Krug. Its grand recipe explains why, built on incredible depth of 50%-60% reserves. Triumphant complexity is a given at Bollinger, but it's the dynamic freshness and vitality that really set it apart as one of the most affordable Champagne benchmarks."
93 points - Wine Spectator
"This harmonious Champagne is wonderfully vibrant as it dances across the palate, with the satinlike mousse carrying flavors of white cherry, Marcona almond and ground coffee that show accents of candied kumquat, ginger, aromatic verbena and graphite. A streak of racy salinity emerges on mouthwatering finish. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier."
93 points - James Suckling
"Lots of biscuit aromas and a wide spectrum of fresh-citrus, candied-citrus, red-apple and red-berry notes. Mouth-filling creaminess, plus quite an imposing presence and powerful structure for an NV Brut. Long, citrus and chalky finish that's very clean and properly dry. 60% pinot noir, 30% chardonnay, 10% pinot meunier. Almost 20% barrel fermented and 62% reserve wines. Based on the 2017 vintage and disgorged July 2021. Drink now."
92 points - Wine Enthusiast
"As always with this producer, this iconic nonvintage cuvÃ©e is dominated by Pinot Noir that gives impressive richness as well as ripe stone fruits. Wood fermentation adds further complexity as does the age of this bottling before release. Drink this Champagne now."
92 points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Disgorged in May 2021, the latest rendition of Bollinger's NV Brut Special CuvÃ©e is showing beautifully, offering up aromas of ripe orchard fruit, citrus oil and peach, mingled with hints of walnuts and freshly baked bread. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping, with a generous core of fruit, lively acids and a pillowy mousse, it's seamless and complete, concluding with an expansive finish."
91 points - Wine & Spirits
"Cool and generous, this is a bold, lusty Champagne with pinot-inspired scents of violets and flavors of dark berries, the wine structured by its time in oak. It's a vinous Brut, suited to roast fish and light game."
