Bollinger R.D. 1997 (Chardonnay and Pinot Noir)

Bollinger RD 1997 (Pinot Noir 62% Chardonnay 38%)

The term RD refers to the practice of recent disgorgement; this wine is essentially La Grande Année, but with the wine left on the lees for an extended period of time, in the case of this bottle more than 10 years as it was disgorged in early 2009. The dosage is lower than for Grande Année, so the finished product is drier. This wine has one of the finest beads I have ever seen, and it has a very fine nose, full and ripe, aromatic and yet full of youthful, fresh, zesty character. It has a very pure and gentle style, fresh and elegant, certainly vivacious and polished. And yet behind this sheen of youthfulness there is a very bold and rather tertiary character. Overall, brilliantly fresh yet also subtly mature. Lovely wine.


Bollinger is a great wine, much more than a great champagne. So here it starts through the vineyards and the demand for the best with regard to the selection of the cru. With 163 acres, Bollinger operates more than 60% of the vineyard you need, a wholly exceptional situation in champagne, which...

Golden color with subtle highlights. Nose: aromas of stewed ripe fruit, particularly quince, but also a discreet note of honey.These are followed by roasted notes and cocoa, which give way to flavours of star anise and nutmeg. Palate: full-bodied attack. Powerful but well-balanced, with persistent flavour. Mineral finish with touches of lemon revealing a pleasing bitterness.

Bollinger R.D. Récemment Dégorgé 2004
The final reminded me of bakery flavours. A very nice bodied wine.
In the end, this Bollinger R.D. Récemment Dégorgé is good with a little acidity really pleasant.
