Bollinger Brut James Bond 007 Edition Champagne France, 2009, 750

From Bollinger:
  • 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.

    The 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."
