- Iconic prestige cuvée: the R.D. in its latest vintage
- The R.D. (Recently Disgorged) was created by Madame Lily Bollinger
- Extremely limited quantities in the world
Rarity of vintages - Few vintages reach the desired standard for R.D. Rarity of volume – there is a limited number of bottles, each one riddle and disgorged by hand. Each of these vintages is a unique expression of the R.D. cuvée.
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.
On 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: A lively and clean opening that reveals notes of white plum, walnut and aniseed. Its freshness is beautiful and its tension incredible.
Why is R.D. 2007 so special?
With the 2007 vintage, the original material of the label is restored, as well as the font of the legendary 1952 vintage, the first of the Bollinger R.D. cuvées. The disgorgement date appears once again. The 2007 vintage of the R.D. cuvée embodies the House’s dedication to hard work and Madame Bollinger’s vision. It underscores the belief in the authenticity of expertise. The contrast between freshness on the palate and the spicy aromatic intensity of Bollinger R.D. 2007 brings a new experience of the cuvée to lovers of fine wine.
