A little advice from the house of Bollinger;

Bollinger R.D. will enhance all gourmet cuisine but its aura is such that it creates a special occasion on its own.
In order to fully appreciate its unique style, bouquet and aromas, it is best served between 8 and 10øC, or more.
Bollinger R.D. can be enjoyed right away to appreciate the exceptional freshness due to its recent disgorging; you may also choose to let it mature further: its ageing potential is endless.

Aromas of stewed ripe fruit, particularly quince, but also a discreet note of honey. Followed by roasted notes and cocoa, which give way to flavours of star anise and nutmeg. On the palate its a Full-bodied attack. Powerful but well-balanced, with persistent flavour. Mineral finish with touches of lemon revealing a pleasing bitterness.

Blend of the 2007 vintage consists of 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.
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 
A lively and clean opening that reveals notes of white plum, walnut and aniseed. Its freshness is beautiful and its tension incredible.

Maturation 

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.
