The Winery

Bollinger

Under the direction of Chef de Caves Mathieu Kauffmann, Bollinger produces one of the most consistent lineups in Champagne. Bollinger is one of the handful of larger firms that manages to put out consistently high quality wines despite its size. The estate based in Ay is probably best known to the public through its long association with the James Bond films, which is quite possibly one of the most successful product placement campaigns of all time. Despite the show biz glamour that has inextricably become part of the Bollinger mystique, at their best these are serious wines with significant aging potential.
- The Wine Advocate

Bollinger is one of the most famous Champagne houses in the world. Located in northern France, the wines are noteworthy because of their typically Pinot Noir-dominant cuvées. It was founded in 1829 as the Renaudin-Bollinger & Cie, and was kept in the Bollinger family until 2008 when they gave the chairman’s job to someone from outside of the family. The House is located in Ay and most of the vines are located on premier and grand cru plots. A unique fact of Bollinger is that each of the cuvées uses no less than 60% Pinot Noir so the wines have a masculine quality and age wonderfully. Their vast portfolio ranges from non-vintage brut and rose wines to their prestige cuvées. The house has continued to make international acclaim thanks to appearances as James Bond’s drink of choice throughout the action film franchise.

Tasting Notes

WA98
This wine was recommended, but no tasting note was given.
WS97
A full-bodied, powerful Champagne featuring biscuit and ginger aromas and flavors, picking up a grilled nut character on the finish. Very firmly structured and dry, yet with the flavor intensity and fine texture to match, this is a tour de force. Endless finish. Drink now through 2020. 60 cases…
