Bollinger Champagne : Key Points

An inimitable style of elegance and excellence has shaped the spirit of Bollinger for nearly two centuries. Affectionately known as "Bolly", this legendary Champagne house has long seen its reputation spread across the world, winning the hearts of international wine lovers and critics. You too can enter the timeless and legendary world of an unmissable name in Champagne.

Location and size of the Bollinger vineyard

Founded in 1829 in Aÿ, in the Marne department, Bollinger oversees a vineyard of 179 hectares of vines. It is one of the few estates to grow its own grapes for its blends. Pinot Noir is the signature grape variety, representing 60% of the estate’s vines.

What is Bollinger’s story?

A history dating back to 1829

Although he inherited some terroirs around Aÿ from his family, which he sensed had a great, Athanase de Villermont could not embark on commercial activity because of his aristocratic status. His meetings with Joseph (known as Jacques) Bollinger and Paul Renaudin, respectively a major player in the champagne trade and a wine enthusiast, led to the creation of the company Renaudin-Bollinger & Cie on 6 February 1829. So began the Bollinger adventure.

Georges Bollinger and his quest for quality

The son of Louise Charlotte Hennequin de Villermont and Joseph Bollinger, Georges Bollinger took over the management of the estate in 1899. Until his death in 1918, he faced with philosophy and dynamism two great challenges: the replanting of the vineyards ravaged by phylloxera over a period of more than twenty years and the dark hours of the First World War.

The development era under Jacques Bollinger at the beginning of the 20th century

Following the death of Georges Bollinger, his father, Jacques instigated a major development of the estate, in its infrastructure and the purchase of vineyards. A few years later, Jacques Bollinger's death marked a real turning point. His wife, Lily, took over the family business at only 42 years old, with as much charm as elegance. A visionary and entrepreneur, she managed the estate wonderfully from 1941 to 1971 thanks to her modern spirit and innate business sense. She is remembered for her talent and her natural predisposition to uphold the lofty style of the house, and for being a woman of great passion and dedication.

From 1971 to 2008, modernisation and international expansion

In 1971, Claude d'Hautefeuille, husband of Madame Bollinger's niece, launched a vast modernisation of the estate’s infrastructure. Subsequently, Christian Bizot, Madame Bollinger's nephew, took over the reins of the estate and developed the distribution of Bollinger champagnes around the world.

The great-great grandson of Joseph Bollinger, Ghislain de Montgolfier, took over the management of Bollinger from 1994 to 2008. He voluntarily limited volumes in order to favour quality while preserving the spirit and philosophy of excellence that has been the strength of the estate since its creation.

The 21st century: a house looking to the future

Since then, the estate has carried on this family heritage, mindful to respect the values that made it famous, while continuing to meet the challenges of our time with brio. Jérôme Philippon, the first non-family president, took over the reins of the estate in 2008, with a wealth of experience in renowned industrial groups. Under his direction, the most meticulous quality requirements were put in place, enabling the estate to rank alongside the greatest names in Champagne.

The quality of Bollinger’s range has continued to affirm its presence throughout the world. Since September 2017, Charles-Armand de Belenet has kept the flame alive with vigour, through a strategy of enhancing and modernising skillsets with inimitable quality and identity.
