James Bond Drinking Champagne

For the first post, a light note.

The most famous penguin-attired spy, James Bond is most notably seen sipping martinis, with exception to the latest movie installment, Skyfall, where a hefty endorsement deal inked with Heineken caused our dapper hero to forego the spirits for the suds. However, when Bond is entertaining one of his many bedfellows, it’s Bollinger Champagne that he reaches for. Unbeknownst to me, Bollinger is the official Champagne of James Bond. So here’s a compilation of Bond’s many bubbly moments.

Bollinger is a famous, and very well-respected Champagne house located in the village of Ay-Champagne and is most famous for their vintage Champagne. You can learn more about their wines and their history here.

Did you know that one bottle of Champagne contains on average 250 million bubbles, and the pressure inside the bottle is equal to that of a double-decker bus tire?

When tasting wine, you note the color of the wine, the way it smells, the way it feels on your tongue, and the way it tastes. The pop of a Champagne cork is one of the rare times when you experience the sound of a wine. And I think that’s cool.
