Product Description

Details

99 points James Suckling
"Super fresh, this is striking given the 10 years in the cellars; it has a fine citrus nose - plenty of lemon, grapefruit, yellow chalky notes, some lighter floral elements too. The palate is super dry (dosage at 3-4g) and there's a silky, sherbet-like texture, smooth, fine and long. The citrus flavours give way to the driving surging acidity, thunderous acidity, really driving and powerful. The finish twists very slowly through to light-toasted cashew fruit flavours, but lemon citrus prevails. This is thrilling Champagne. Disgorged 22nd October, 2013. Drink from 2016."
Madame Bollinger created this legendary wine with the 1952 vintage, giving the world the opportunity to taste a champagne aged on the lees for an exceptionally long time. Bollinger R.D. allows wine connoisseurs a very special moment, when very recently disgorged wine is as fresh and aromatic as ever. It is a small revolution in the world of Champagne. Aromas of ripe fruit and a discreet note of honey are followed by roasted notes and cocoa, which give way to flavors of star anise and nutmeg. Full-bodied and rich, Bollinger R.D. 2002 is a powerful, well-balanced wine with persistent flavor.
