The champagne of James Bond (the movie version) never disappoints. Full bodied, generous, with gorgeous mousse. Works with food or canapés. It's the BMW of champagne - reliable, sexy, luxurious with perfection in the detail.

Limes, lemon and ginger on the nose. Very acidic attack, with a powerful mousse of bubbles. Nice quince flavors with a clean soft biscuit note. Soft finish on gentle sugars which give it honeysuckle hint. Tasted at Tengley Oaks. 1 million magnums of this are in the cellars, some of this wine is barrel aged, which is rare for a Champagne of this level. 60% pinot noir lends acidity to this big, bold chamapagne.

Champagne as good as it gets. Bond. James Bond loves it too. And so far it's the best thing I ever tasted. Looks like Gold and is rather affordable. My best friend has a 2000 vintage waiting for a special day to celebrate life and live it. Long Finish

yeasty biscuit dough aromas and a pleasing touch of oxidation and funk on the nose. Rich round and full bodied with a persistent mousse. This is a classic.

Yum. Yum. Why does he champagne style I prefer. Full-bodied, yeasty and toasty and screaming of baked lemon goods. I much prefer this to the lighter, more floral Champagnes out there.

A beautiful Champagne. Complex and elegant, evoking ginger, jasmine, citrus and honey aromas and flavors, accented by a biscuit and grain component coming as much from barrel fermentation as yeast aging. Very firmly structured and long. Enjoy with Asian foods or Parmesan cheese. Drink now through 2006.

A great house; incredible bang-for-the-buck; pinot driven, with great yeasty notes; sweet poached apples and toffee accented by crisp acidity; elegant, rich and complex.

Deep golden appearance. Moderately full-bodied. Highly extracted. Yeast, pear, minerals. Ripe pear aromas have some Manzanilla-like accents. The palate shows a rich weighty mouthfeel with broad, soft fruity flavors. The finish does not show great authority.

Good character here, showing malt, bread dough, citrus and mineral flavors matched to a lightweight, vibrant frame. It has moderate intensity and a lingering finish. Drink now.

Complex aromas and flavors of rose, grilled nuts, citrus and a gently oxidative note course through this muscular, full-bodied bubbly. Despite its power, there’s a gracefulness. The aftertaste combines citrus and spice. Drink now through 2008.

"Bolly Sweetie"? An AbFab Favourite!Pinot noir dominates this classic Champagne, that is rich and intense on the nose and palate, and has a long, satisfying finish. A true gem amongst Kings.

Medium straw hue. Toasty, dried apple aromas show hints of roasted coffee. Rich on the attack with a moderately full body and plenty of fruit on the mid-palate. The finish has great length. A good example of the Bollinger style with some pleasing oxidized notes plainly evident.
