Mentzendorff has been in the pink this year, launching Champagne Bollinger's first non-vintage rosé and what it says is the world's first pink port, Croft Pink. This year the company celebrates its 150th anniversary and its unbroken agency agreement with Champagne Bollinger over that time. The sales team has been restructured with two new sales directors promoted from within. Above-the-line investment is on the cards for the year ahead, but no new agencies will be introduced, as part of a strategy to keep its focus and deliver budgeted results in a tougher economic climate.
