In 1994 it was none other than the great-great-grandson of founder Joseph Bollinger who was to become head of the House. After starting his career in Chili, Ghislain de Montgolfier continued to develop the House with the pursuit of excellence as a guiding light. He continues to maintain a policy of voluntarily limiting amounts produced to increase quality, while remaining true to the Bollinger spirit. In 2007 his technical expertise led him to be elected as head of the Board of the Union des Maisons de Champagne and co-chairman of the Comité Champagne.
