Bollinger Champagne Also Host Premiere Of Spectre In Lagos
An exclusive screening of the 24th James Bond movie, Spectre took place in Lagos, Nigeria on Thursday, 5th November 2015 at the Genesis Deluxe Cinemas Lagos. The highly anticipated movie premiere was hosted by popular champagne brand, Bollinger.
The relationship between the cinematic Bond and Bollinger began when the Broccoli-Wilson family, producers of the Bond films, sought a wine to match Bond’s impeccable taste and refined personality. Not surprisingly, they chose Champagne Bollinger, long acknowledged as one of the world’s finest Champagnes. A mutual friendship developed between the Broccoli-Wilson family and the Bollinger family, and Champagne Bollinger has remained a Bond favorite even as the torch has been passed from Roger Moore to Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and now Daniel Craig.
Bollinger and Bond is one of the most enduring marketing partnerships in motion picture history. Champagne Bollinger was featured in almost every Bond movie since Live And Let Die released in 1973.
In the movie Spectre, James Bond played by Daniel Craig discovers a cryptic message from his past that sends him on a rogue mission to Mexico City and eventually Rome, where he meets the beautiful and forbidden widow of an infamous criminal, Lucia Sciarra played by Monica Bellucci. Bond infiltrates a secret meeting and uncovers the existence of the sinister organisation known as Spectre.
Founded in 1829, Bollinger has been part of the history of the Champagne region for more than 180 years. Members of the family came from many different horizons, and over the decades they have patiently built up an impressive heritage, always devoted to the service of what has become one of the most emblematic Houses the Champagne region has ever known. The champagne has been a long time favorite of British Royalty and was the first brand to receive the Royal seal in 1884.
They produce several labels of Champagne under the Bollinger name, including the vintage, La Grand Année and La Grand Année rosé as well as the non-vintage Special Cuvée.
