We are delighted to offer a superb champagne from one of the most recognisable and desirable brands in the world: the 2002 Bollinger R.D. .
James Suckling recently scored the R.D. it at 99 points - the second time he has done so - and has previously called it a “thrilling Champagne”. Antonio Galloni is also a fan, calling the 2002 R.D. “striking in its beauty” with “exceptional balance and harmony” and commenting that it “should also age impeccably”.
The RD, or Récemment Dégorgé (recently disgorged), is the same wine as the excellent Bollinger Vintage Grand Année but matured for eight years on the lees, providing a delicious complexity, richness and depth. It is stunning, with Antonio Galloni calling it “one of Champagne’s legendary wines.”
Given the costs involved in the production and the length of time the R.D. has spent maturing, it offers outstanding value for money and is sure to be a highlight of any collection. We are very pleased to offer:
