One of the most famous people who defended Bollinger during the turmoil of World War II was Madame Elizabeth Lily Bollinger, wife of Jacques Bollinger, the third generation head of the family. She left us with these words,
“I drink champagne when I am happy and when I am sad. I drink when I am alone, and of course I drink when I am with friends. I also sip a little when I am hungry. Other than that, I don’t touch Champagne. Except when I am thirsty.”
Her thoughts and feelings are still passed on to the family and staff who support Bollinger, to all of us.
