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." AG

The House of Bollinger was created in 1829 in Aÿ through the exciting partnership of two eminent men, Admiral Athanase-Louis-Emmanuel, the Count of Villermont, who owned vines on the Montagne de Reims, and Jacques-Joseph-Placide Bollinger, his son-in-law. It has since become one of the most respected and consistent of champagne houses, producing full bodied champagnes with great longevity and grace.

The house still uses ancestral techniques such as hand riddling and employs a resident cooper. As such, Bollinger was first Champagne House to receive the Patrimoine Vivant (‘Living Heritage’) seal of quality which rewards exceptional craftsmanship.
