Town & Country is embracing the festive season with its latest online feature, “The Best Champagne For Your Holiday Celebrations.” The piece highlights Champagne Bollinger Special Cuvée in the story, adding “007 may be British, but his go-to bubbly is decidedly French. In addition to being the official champagne brand of James Bond, this bottle’s notes of red currant, creme brûlée, and subtle baking spice make it an ideal partner for seafood courses, cheese plates—even festive turkey dinner.” You can read the full story with writer Lauren Hubbard’s other recommendations here
From vineyard to bottling, Special Cuvée sees such an extraordinary level of care and attention, it is difficult to place within the non-vintage or, really, any Champagne category. It is a Champagne that stands apart. Within one bottle, all the complexity of flavour, texture and pleasure that Champagne can offer. Special Cuvée is truly a journey of devotion from Bollinger.
Bollinger is one of the rare Grande Marques that’s still family owned. Known for its rich, elegant and polished style of Champagne, their outstanding wines are the result of rigorous attention to detail and incredibly labor-intensive practices that few houses are willing to undertake. Underscoring its excellence, Bollinger has remained British secret agent James Bond's Champagne of choice since 1973.
