Notes from the Winemaker:
To celebrate the release of the 24th Bond film, Champagne Bollinger created a limited edition SPECTRE crystal champagne cooler set including Bollinger R.D. 1988 Magnum bottle. A true collector's item, this unique cooler was limited worldwide to only 307 pieces.

The crystal cooler was conceived and designed by Eric Berthès, and made by Crystal Saint Louis.

Founded in 1586 in Lorraine, Crystal Saint Louis became the first glassworks in Continental Europe in 1781. Saint-Louis, which now belongs to the Hermès Group, has preserved a unique know-how.

Designer Eric Berthès wanted the cooler to be a setting for a true classic, Bollinger R.D. 1988 (the same vintage Bollinger that Bond has stored in his Aston Martin DB5 in GoldenEye).
The gunbarrel design is subtly visible at the base of the crystal, while the top of the cooler is marked with the new SPECTRE logo.

Ratings & Reviews

92 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Mature and nutty in character, this 1988 exhibits a firm texture and an elegant stature, a fine backdrop for the roast coffee, hazelnut and citrus flavors. Dry style. Drink now through 2003. 10,000 cases imported." - BS (Nov 30, 2001)

Vinous:
"Walnut, hazelnut, butterscotch and a Tokaji-like suggestion of damp stone on the yeasty nose. Brisk in texture, quite dry and distinctly mature, with a nut skin note and slightly sour-edged acidity. But concentrated and firmly structured. A classic dinner table bubbly. Bollinger fans appreciate the mature flavors of this Champagne, but my sample seemed a bit past its best. " - Stephen Tanzer (Nov 2001)
