The wine offers freshness and an extraordinary intensity due to its recent disgorgement, as well as the aromas of an old vintage which has been aged for more than 13 years in the heart of the Bollinger cellars in Aÿ. An old vintage, disgorged shortly before its release, with a very low dosage – the R.D. cuvée embodies the audacity of Madame Bollinger, a wine ahead of its time.
Blend of the 2007 vintage
70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay.
14 crus: 91% Grands crus and 9% Premiers crus.
Exclusive use of the cuvée. Fermentation entirely in oak barrels.
Only the very best vintages are elevated to the level of Bollinger R.D.: the 2007 vintage is characterised by remarkable precision and energy.
A very long maturation, more than four times longer than required by the appellation, for an infinite array of flavours: a true wine alchemy.
Maturation carried out under natural cork.
Recent disgorgement :-
Bollinger R.D. is released only a few months after it is disgorged.
This recent disgorgement guarantees the remarkable freshness of the wine.
Very low: "Extra Brut"", 3 grammes per litre.
To the eye :-
Intense shimmers of gold.
To the nose:-
Complex on the nose with aromas of honey and brioche. This is followed by a host of spices (ginger, cumin, caraway and more), before evolving into notes of mirabelle plum, dried apricot and fresh hazelnut.
On the palate:-
lively and clean opening that reveals notes of white plum, walnut and aniseed. Its freshness is beautiful and its tension incredible.
