Description

This is the result of Madame Bollinger’s great vision: an expert wine with aromas enhanced by its exceptionally long maturation. Madame Bollinger created this legendary champagne in 1967 with the 1952 vintage, giving the world the opportunity to taste a champagne aged on lees for an exceptionally long time but that was still fresh and aromatic – a small revolution in the world of Champagne. Bollinger R.D. combines the boldness of a recent disgorgement with the brilliance of the 2004 vintage. Produced exclusively with the cuvée juice from 16 Crus (88% Grands crus and 12% Premier crus). Bollinger R.D. is then fermented exclsuively in small oak barrels and aged under natural cork in the cellars under
Madame Bollinger’s house for more than four times longer than required by the appellation for an infinite array of flavours: a true wine alchemy. R.D. stands for Récemment Dégorgé, Recently Disgorged. Champagne Bollinger R.D. is released only a few months after it is disgorged guaranteeing the remarkable freshness of the wine.

The nose displays an abundance of stewed and candied fruits, accompanied by touches of sweet spice. With time, notes of mirabelle and preserved orange unfold in the glass. Intense cooked fruit and tarte tatin flavours express themselves in a mouth that is full and harmonious.
