BOLLINGER RD 2004 Extra Brut
In the 1960s, while unusually shaped bottles of champagne were developed, the Bollinger House decided to stand out by its signature taste. Although old vintages were not fashionable at that period, Madame Bollinger offered a completely original tasting experience – she decided to launch an old vintage, recently disgorged and dosed as an Extra Brut. She thus claims her vision – absolute prestige of the Bollinger House lies within the wine itself, the taste and the expertise.
In 1967, the 1952 vintage is released, the first which will bear the name of the cuvée for the very first time, Bollinger R.D. (Recently Disgorged). Its label is the first one in history to specify a disgorgement date.
It is a revolution that will have a lasting impact on the Bollinger style. A unique wine, a vintage aged for a long time on lees, that is afterwards disgorged by hand. This precise moment creates an aromatic explosion of the aged wine. The result is powerful, rare, and precious – the contrast between a wonderful freshness on the palate, underscored by the Extra Brut dosage, and the aromatic intensity of the finest vintages. A truly great idea that gives rise today to Bollinger. R.D.
Bollinger R.D. will enhance all great gastronomic moments. R.D. 2004 marries perfectly with the most refined dishes, such as pigeon cooked pink or roasted scallops. The intensity of the wine makes it the perfect partner for an aged Gruyère or Comté.
