Bollinger makes some of the most full-bodied, rich and powerful style Champagne among the top houses. With a Pinot-dominant style, use of barrel-aging and being slightly oxidative, they have a strong following globally including ourselves! Bollinger R.D., abbreviation for "Recemment Degorge", lies in the cellar and is aged longer on the lees, and usually receives lower dosage at around 3-4g/L. It can be enjoyed soon after release if you prefer richer fruits and freshness and also has great potential for post-disgorgement aging.
After sampling a few vintages of the R.D., we believe this is a sophisticated champagne that every wine collector should experience in a lifetime. Today we are pleased to offer the Bollinger R.D. 1997 which is already readily enjoyable and can already offer the complete scene of its potential. At HK$1,800 per bottle, we have just 6 bottles readily available from stock and another 12 bottles arriving in about 3-4 weeks -

97pts Wine Enthusiast Best of 2010, Cellar Selection* Disgorged in 2009, this is a toasty wine, rich and concentrated. The idea of long aging before disgorging the yeast cells is to build up the unique complexity of the wine. In this Bollinger has succeeded magnificently. An opulent wine, with aging potential for 10 years or more.
