Bollinger – The Secret Agency in Champagne | 香檳界特務
Notably fancied by James Bond, Bollinger is one of the very few family-owned champagne houses. Unlike most of the others, Bollinger owns a myriads of vineyards which enable selective grape growing and sheer autonomy of production. The Bollinger house prominently upholds several exceptional practices. Every cuvee has a minimum of 60% pinot noir, which is widely regarded as the best kind of red grapes. Bollinger also ages its cuvee for longer periods, compared to its peers, for producing very fine, velvety texture.
Bollinger 是007占士邦最熱愛的香檳，亦是少數仍然由家族持有的品牌。跟其他香檳公司不同，Bollinger 擁有眾多自家葡萄園，絕對有自主權容許挑剔的品質要求。Bollinger 素來秉持數個原則，包括每支香檳最少60%成份是黑皮諾 (Pinot Noir，普遍被認為最佳的釀酒葡萄)。Bollinger 的香檳亦比同輩花更長時間釀製，令口感更柔順。
