Bollinger R.D. Vintage Champagne is an experience of extraordinary freshness of a recently disgorged wine and the exceptional aromas of an old vintage. R.D. is an abbreviation of ‘Recently Disgorged’ where the champagne has spent longer resting on its lees. The longer aged wines are disgorged approx. 6 months before sale creating this amazing taste experience.
To get the best out of your image we need to make sure you check a few things first.
Firstly, is the image in the correct file format, we accept JPEG, PNG, PDF and TIFF files.
Secondly we need to make sure we can get the most detail into your engraving, make sure your image is in focus, and there is a good amount of contrast.
Finally make sure that the main subject of your photo takes up a large portion of the image.
Take a look at some of our examples of good photos to get some ideas and look at examples of photos that won’t work so you know what to avoid.
This is a good image, plenty of contrast, no direct sunlight and the main subject is clear, in focus and takes up most of the image
This is not a great image at all, the main subject should be the person but they are far too small to engrave.
This is a great image, the focus is sharp, there is good contrast the lighting isn’t too strong and the main subject takes up most of the image.
This is a good fun image that will work really well on a bottle, the image is crisp and in focus, the background is clear and the contrast on the two faces means there will be plenty of detail in the engraving.
While this group of friends is the main focus of the image, their faces are very small, three of the people on the left hand side will not work well at all, there won’t be much detail at all and the person on the far left will be unrecognisable. This is due to the over exposing of the photo from the sun being directly in the photo.
This is another photo that won’t engrave well at all, there is no detail at all in the face, the sunlight has washed out a lot of the contrast and detail has been lost.
Vintage photos are very unpredictable we cannot guarantee success with these.
Bollinger R.D. is a vintage brut style champagne and forms part of our extensive Champagne range.
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.
