Details

The majority of Champagne Houses have always kept a collection of old wines in order to share with their family, close friends and special guests. The custom was that these old wines were especially disgorged only a very short time before being tasted, so that those invited could share a perfect moment when the wine, disgorged just recently, would offer an extraordinary freshness and sumptuous aromatic expression.

This is the boldness of both R.D. and Madame Bollinger who, realising the greatness of these wines, was the first to want to commercialise them in order to offer the entire world the chance to experience this tasting moment, considered at the time as “the ultimate in French Champagne”. At Bollinger, this exceptional cuvée would be called R.D. for “Recently Disgorged”, and its labels would be the first in history to bear a disgorgement date. A small revolution in the world of Champagne.

Bollinger Champagne was founded in 1829 by Paul Renaudin and Jacques Bollinger in the small town of Ay, where it remains today as one of the last independent champagne houses’, and it is still run by members of the Bollinger family. Bollinger is fondly referred to as ‘Bolly’, and is renowned for producing a powerful, complex and sophisticated style of champagne.

Bollinger R.D. is bright and golden in colour, aromas of stewed fruits, spices and ripe orange and a grand smooth taste centered on intense cooked, rich fruits.

Bollinger R.D. Vintage champagne is available on next day delivery with wooden gift box and gift-wrapping options. Check out how we can personalise this bottle by engraving messages into the glass, and this bottle can also be personalised with an engraved image or photograph.
