Bollinger R.D. 2007 Vintage Champagne is a blend of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay from 14 different crus including 91% Grand Crus and 9% Premier Crus. This vintage is fresh and holds extraordinary density after ageing for 13 years in the heart of the Bollinger cellars. 

“Recently Disgorged” means that disgorgement has taken place less than one year before commercial release. The wine offers freshness and extraordinary intensity due to its recent disgorgement, as well as the aromas of an old vintage which has been aged in the cellar for an exceptionally long time, all the while nourished by contact with the lees and has blossomed during this time stored in perfect conditions.

In order to showcase its unique style, we recommend serving Bollinger R.D. at a temperature of 8°C, then to appreciate the evolution of its aromas over the course of the tasting. To discover the freshness of recent disgorgement, Bollinger R.D. can be enjoyed in the year it was disgorged, or you may also choose to let it mature further: its potential for ageing is endless.

"2007 is in most hands a weak and diluted vintage that I normally avoid. The exception is spelled Bollinger! The powerful house style often shines brighter during lighter vintages than the years when the heat dominates and creates inflated fruit bombs. Bollinger ‘Vieilles Vignes Françaises’ stands in a class of its own, but then the vintage wines from Bollinger are top on my list from 2007.

The wine was already like ‘La Grande Année’ classically built and balanced with good depth and tightly beautiful malic acids. Now in the ‘R.D.’ version, the minerality is even clearer with macadam, chalk and gunpowder smoke. The champagne is extremely slim with a slightly buttery vanilla-like note as the top layer on above the dry notes of cocoa, hazelnut cream, dried apricots, blood orange and red juicy apples. The taste has a lighter mouthfeel than usual and significantly less of forest mushrooms, wood and spices than in most vintages of this heroic wine. An unusually fine-tuned classic that would fit perfectly in a romantic bedroom scene in the next Bond movie."
