Champagne Bollinger

750ML

£350.00

Made exclusively from Grand Cru and Premier Cru vineyards, Bollinger RD is a very special wine indeed. The RD range is a specialty of Bollinger, the wines spend an extended period of time on the ‘lees’ which allows the wine to develop richer flavours whilst preserving the inherent freshness.

Aromas of hazelnut, tinned peaches and citrus peel. The paalte is round and mature but somehow refreshing. A slight hint of toffee and latte on the finish. This is a Champagne to enjoy with food, try it with teriyaki salmon.

    Description

    “I drink Champagne when I’m happy and when I’m sad. Sometimes I drink it when I’m alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I’m not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise, I never touch it―unless I’m thirsty.” – Lily Bollinger

    Since 1829, Bollinger has been producing great Chamapanges with a powerful, sophisticated and complex style. Known for their uncompromising ethos, the majority of Bollinger’s production is made using their own grapes, and most of these are fermented in barrel to help create the rich house style.

    Made exclusively from Grand Cru and Premier Cru vineyards, Bollinger RD is a very special wine indeed. The RD range is a specialty of Bollinger, the wines spend an extended period of time on the ‘lees’ which allows the wine to develop richer flavours whilst preserving the inherent freshness.

    The 1996 R.D. (2012 disgorgement) is in a gorgeous spot right now. A stunning set of aromas and flavors have developed in bottle, making the 1996 a real treat to taste and drink at this stage. Scents of coffee, hazelnut, honey, dried flowers, menthol and candied orange peel all lift from the glass. Mature and yet also quite fresh, with terrific nuance, the 1996 R.D. is a terrific example of the timeless beauty that only Champagne can deliver.
    96/100 - Antonio Galloni, Vinous (Tasted July 2019)
