Tasting notes

97 Points - The Wine Advocate

"Fermented in oak barrels and aged under natural corks for almost 13 years, Bollinger's 2004 R. D. Extra Brut blends 66% Pinot Noir with 34% Chardonnay from 16 crus, 88% of which are classified as Grand Cru. The wine opens with a very clear, deep, rich and aromatic but also pure and mineral-fresh nose of crushed rocks, cherries, brioche, pain aux raisin, white nougat, chalk and ripe, yellow-fleshed fruits. Highly elegant and complex on the weightless yet persistent and salty palate, this is an intense, densely woven, firmly structured yet elegant, beautifully refined and refreshing "recent disgorgement" (February 2018) that reveals just a kiss of oxidative flavours that adds even more complexity."

    Bollinger

    Onshore Cellars - ICONIC Producer

    Founded by Paul Renaudin and Joseph Bollinger and now managed by Jérôme Philipon, the famous Champagne house of Bollinger has been producing masculine champagnes with body, depth and power for centuries.

    Over the years the vineyard holdings have been steadily increased with the largest expansion taking place under the management of the legendary Madame Lily Bollinger. She ran the company between 1941 and 1977 and was best remembered for her statement -

    "I drink champagne when I’m happy and when I’m sad. Sometimes I drink it when I’m alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I’m not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise, I never touch it -- unless I’m thirsty."
