Champagne Bollinger has launched two new wines in celebration of its 40-year partnership with James Bond.
As a tribute to the 1979 film where the champagne makes its first appearance, Bollinger has released a limited-edition luxury Moonraker magnum encased in an Eric Berthes-designed box. The packaging was inspired by the original space shuttle featured in the 007 film and opens to reveal a Saint Louis crystal ice bucket and a magnum of Bollinger 2007.
The second wine is the Bollinger 007 Limited Edition Millésimé 2011. It marks the release of the upcoming 007 movie, No Time To Die. The bottle features the number 25, as a tribute to the 25th film in the franchise and is made using titles from the previous films. The same titles are etched onto the glass on the front of the display box.
“It brings me an immense amount of pride to be celebrating 40 years of partnership between Bollinger and James Bond,” said Etienne Bizot CEO at Bollinger. “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.”
Both wines are limited-edition with the Moonraker magnum only having 407 copies.
