Why to buy: Got a James Bond fanatic in your life? You’d be hard-pressed to find a better gift than this one. Bollinger has been 007’s on-screen bubbly of choice for almost 40 years, and this special edition 2002 La Grand Année Brut Champagne is the “most exceptional vintage of the last decade,” according to cellar master Mathieu Kauffmann. This limited-edition package is modeled after James Bond’s famous Walther PPK silencer, and requires a special combination of digits (007, naturally) to unlock the beautiful emerald bottle inside.
Characteristics: Riddled by hand, with a lemon-golden hue, a minerally character, and a bouquet of sweet apple, citrus and thyme, this is a stunning Champagne from a stunning producer. Stony and creamy in equal measures, the palate is full of sherbet and fruit, balanced by a firm acidity. Incredibly richly textured, with an expansive feel on the palate, this bubbly nonetheless dissolves into lingering, clean finish.
Varietals: 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay
Discorged: February 2011
Since 1829 the Bollinger champagne House has been crafting wines so outstanding, the Court of England has awarded the House the Royal Warrant since 1884.
