To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the James Bond film franchise, Bollinger has released a special edition of their vintage ’02 (an Excellent Year) named a fittingly Bollinger JamesBond 007. According to Mathieu Kauffmann, cellar master at Bollinger, La Grande Année 2002 is “the most exceptional vintage of the past decade.”
