Not everyone knows it, but Winston Churchill loved Champagne. But not just any Champagne! Indeed, Winston Churchill maintained a great friendship with the Pol Roger Champagne house in Epernay.
The Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill, the prestigious cuvée of the House of Pol Roger, was created as a tribute to Winston Churchill. It is considering the qualities he appreciated in Champagne that this Champagne was made: robustness, structure and maturity.
As he said: “My tastes are simple, I’m easily satisfied with the best”
Möet champagne was pretty appreciated by the Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte and his companies. In 1814 Jean-Rémy Moët got rewarded by Napoleon to the Légion d’honneur, the highest honor decoration in France. According to the legend, it is thanks to Napoleon and his troops that we now have the tradition of cracking open a bottle of champagne with a saber.
Champagne is a drink for every situation, As Napoleon said:
“I cannot live without Champagne. If I win, I deserve it; If I lose, I need it”
If the great 007 is a vodka-martini man, he is no less fond of fine Champagne, which delights women who succumb to its charm.
In his early days, the future legendary James Bond was accompanied by Dom Perignon Champagne. For about ten years, these two great names shared the bill. However, at the turn of the 1970s, Bollinger Champagne took over and made the eyes of James Bond, who has never been without it since. Indeed, out of 23 films, 12 show the famous brand on the big screen. Thus, always accompanied by Bollinger Champagne and a young lady more or less in distress, and above all madly in love with him, 007 has built up a true friendship with the Bollinger house. Bollinger Champagne is the official Champagne of James Bond. In honor of this partnership of more than 40 years, the Bollinger house has launched a 007 cuvée.
As Honoré de Balzac used to say:
“Great love stories begin with champagne”.
