Celebrating 40 Years of Bollinger & 007
In 1979, Champagne Bollinger appeared on screen with the release of Moonraker, becoming the Official Champagne for the famous British secret agent. The partnership has evolved over the years and is now a recognisable part of the legacy of both brands.

“It brings me an immense amount of pride to be celebrating 40 years of partnership between Bollinger and James Bond, 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.” - Etienne Bizot, Société Jacques Bollinger CEO

“One of the great partnerships in cinema – forty years and counting.” - Michael G. Wilson & Barbara Broccoli, producers of the James Bond films

2019 marks a milestone in the exclusive partnership between Champagne Bollinger and James Bond


Moonraker, released forty years ago, featured James Bond whose mission took him on an outer space adventure. It was also the movie on which the Bond and Bollinger partnership began. To celebrate their 40 year partnership, Champagne Bollinger and 007 pay tribute to their shared heritage and revisit the space shuttle created by legendary production designer Ken Adam. Champagne Bollinger enlisted designer Eric Berthes to re-imagine the Moonraker space shuttle. Crafted from pewter and wood veneer, encasing a Saint Louis crystal ice bucket and a magnum of Bollinger 2007, the Bond vintage par excellence. Each numbered piece has been crafted and finished by hand, making it unique. Limited edition of 407 copies. RRP £4,500.

The 40th anniversary of the partnership will be celebrated in Paris on the 7th November, with a special unveiling of the Bollinger Tribute to Moonraker Luxury Limited Edition.

To mark the release of the upcoming movie No Time To Die starring Daniel Craig, the 25th instalment of the James Bond series, the House has created a limited edition wine dedicated to 007, with a 2011 vintage inspired by the world of Bond. The jet-black 75cl bottle is adorned with the number "25", formed from the titles of the previous films, which are similarly etched on the glass of the wooden box. The 2011 vintage, an atypical year, inspired Cellar Master to produce a unique champagne, created entirely from Pinot Noir from the Grand Cru village of Aÿ, where the House was first established in 1829. This is the first time that both the vintage and village have been used exclusively by Bollinger to make a dedicated wine. The excellent 2011 harvest in Aÿ, produced complex, powerful and harmonious Pinot Noirs, fully expressed in this characterful wine. RRP £150.

Note:
No Time To Die will be released in cinemas globally from April 2 2020 in the U.K. through Universal Pictures International and in the U.S on April 10, from Metro Goldwyn Mayer via their United Artists Releasing banner. In Sweden and the rest of Scandinavia, No Time To Die will be released by SF Studios.

The Bollinger 007 Limited Edition Millésimé 2011 will be released via a pre-sale to celebrate James Bond Day on the 5th October.
