The prestigious house of Bollinger was founded in 1929 and is one of the last remaining independent Champagne houses. It has been family managed since 1889 and is currently run by Ghislain de Mongolfier, who is a great-grandson of the founder, Jacques Bollinger. Bollinger champagne is renowned worldwide and has even been used in James Bond films, 'Die another Day' and 'Casino Royale'.
Bollinger uses a technique that is quite unique in Champagne: vinification in wood barrels. This individual house style has become an important element in creating a great wine; allowing a more gradual oxidation, which in turn improves the development of the aromas.
