Bollinger R.D. is a unique wine, a vintage aged on the lees for a long period, before being disgorged by hand. The result is powerful, rare and precious: a contrast between an extraordinary freshness on the palate – emphasised by the extra-brut dosage – and the aromatic intensity of the greatest vintages.
The 2007 vintage marks a return to the roots of the R.D. cuvée and its historic label. The original material and legendary font of the 1952 vintage have been restored to the label. It once again shows the date of disgorging. Authenticity, rediscovered.
The 2007 harvest, one of the earliest for a century in Champagne produced grapes of an exceptional quality. The contrast between the intensity of the spicy aromas, the notes of fruit, brioche and honey, and the wine’s freshness makes for a rare tasting experience of this vibrant cuvée.
