Founded by Paul Renaudin and Joseph Bollinger and now managed by Jérôme Philipon, the famous Champagne house of Bollinger has been producing masculine champagnes with body, depth and power for centuries.
Over the years the vineyard holdings have been steadily increased with the largest expansion taking place under the management of the legendary Madame Lily Bollinger. She ran the company between 1941 and 1977 and was best remembered for her statement -
"I drink champagne when I’m happy and when I’m sad. Sometimes I drink it when I’m alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I’m not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise, I never touch it -- unless I’m thirsty."
