Bollinger SPECTRE is a limited-edition grand cru Champagne released to commemorate the 14th appearance of the brand in a James Bond film. Presented in a chill box to keep it cool for more than two hours, this is a must for James Bond fans and Champagne connoisseurs alike.
Tasting Note:It 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.
