Winemaker Notes

The James Bond franchise has built an enduring relationship with the Bollinger brand that goes back to 1973. To celebrate the release of the new film, Spectre, the House has produced a 2009 bottling which has been dedicated to the Bond Limited Edition exclusively.

Not only are you getting a very good Champagne made from Grand Cru sites but it also comes in a rather chic looking metal chill box, a design apparently inspired by James Bond's tuxedo and intended to imitate the texture of the handgrip on Bond's favoured sidearm, the Walther PPK. We don't know whether it was Q himself who came up with the idea and alas it appears not to be bullet proof but we think you will love it none the less.

On the nose, the wine boasts a refined complexity, the expression of the Grands crus' terroirs. White flowers, citrus fruit,delicately stewed pear with hints of vanilla, toasted aromas, hazelnut and breadcrumbs. On the palate the wine shows a good maturity yet remains quite brisk and lively. We move through candied fruit, mirabelle plum, quince paste and honey with a finish that reminds us of bitter orange.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Bollinger's 2009 Millésime Edition Limitée 007 has a very clear, fine and fruity bouquet that reflects a perfect blend of Grands Crus dressed with Pinot Noir (68%) and Chardonnay (32%). Fermented in small used barrels and disgorged in February 2014, the 2009 is very elegant, intense and balanced on the palate; it reveals a remarkable finesse with fine pearls and sweet cherry-flavored fruit. Its finish is well structured and quite powerful and fruity, though it keeps the elegant style. Could be drier for Bond, though that's for the girls, isn't it? Back to the facts. Here's how Bollinger comments on the 2009 harvest: "Favorable weather conditions allowed the vines to bud mid-April, slightly early compared to the average of the past ten years. Flowering was disrupted by rain and cool temperatures. Early summer was marked by a succession of violent storms that raised concerns of vine health. As of August 1, there was uninterrupted excellent weather until the harvest, which ran from September 12 to 27 with idyllic temperatures. The average potential alcohol for Bollinger reached 10.1° with an acidity of seven grams per liter."

In 1829, Champagne Bollinger introduced an instantly recognizable, dry, toasty style that connoisseurs around the globe have coveted ever since. Six generations of the Bollinger family have maintained that trademark style, and Bollinger is one of the rare Grande Marque houses to be owned, controlled and managed by the same family since it was founded.

With 399 acres of vineyards situated in the best Grands Crus and Premiers Crus villages, Bollinger relies on its own estate for nearly two-thirds of its grape requirements, including the Pinot Noir that gives its Champagne its distinctive roundness and elegance. Bollinger is one of a select few houses that can control the quality of its grape supply so carefully.

Bollinger is renowned for its stringent quality standards. It adheres to traditional methods, including individual vinification of each marc and cru, barrel fermentation (it is the last Champagne house to employ a full-time cooper) and extra-aging on the lees prior to disgorgement.

Members of the British Royal Court were among the first to embrace Bollinger’s unmistakable quality, and Queen Victoria made Bollinger the exclusive purveyor to the Court by Royal Warrant in 1884. Besides royalty, loyal devotees have included heads of state, celebrities and even famous fictional characters: Agent 007, James Bond, demands the exclusive Champagne Bollinger.

Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, the region, Champagne, is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to bear the label, ‘Champagne’, a sparkling wine must originate from this northeastern region of France—called Champagne—and adhere to strict quality standards. Made up of the three towns Reims, Épernay, and Aÿ, it was here that the traditional method of sparkling wine production was both invented and perfected, birthing a winemaking technique as well as a flavor profile that is now emulated worldwide.

Well-drained, limestone and chalky soil defines much of the region, which lend a mineral component to its wines. Champagne’s cold, continental climate promotes ample acidity in its grapes but weather differences from year to year can create significant variation between vintages. While vintage Champagnes are produced in exceptional years, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years in order to produce Champagnes that maintain a consistent house style.

With nearly negligible exceptions, three varieties are permitted for use in Champagne: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. These can be blended together or bottled as individual varietal Champagnes, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, elegance, lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit and white flowers. Pinot Noir and its relative Pinot Meunier, provide the backbone to many blends, adding structure, body and supple red fruit flavors. Wines with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier will be ready to drink earlier, while Pinot Noir contributes to longevity. Whether it is white or rosé, most Champagne is made from a blend of red and white grapes—and uniquely, rosé is often produce by blending together red and white wine. A Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay will be labeled as ‘blanc de blancs,’ while ones comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’

Representing the topmost expression of a Champagne house, a vintage Champagne is one made from the produce of a single, superior harvest year. Vintage Champagnes account for a mere 5% of total Champagne production and are produced about three times in a decade. Champagne is typically made as a blend of multiple years in order to preserve the house style; these will have non-vintage, or simply, NV on the label. The term, "vintage," as it applies to all wine, simply means a single harvest year.
