Bollinger Champagne R.D. 2004
Limited extended aged release from Bollinger, top-notch Champagne.
This champagne has a deep golden colour, from extended ageing. The nose is wonderfully rich and complex, with almond and yeasty notes, along with baked apple pie and dried apricot. The wine is full-bodied and richly fruited, with soft rounded mousse and lots of complexity. The finish is very long and shows the quality of this superb Champagne.
Bollinger has been family-owned since 1829 and the spirit of independence and passion guide the audacious and intransident decisions of the house. In July 1884 Bollinger was granted the Royal warrant by Queen Victoria, the symbol of the official supplier to the Court, and Bollinger has played a part for more than a century at the most important ceremonies of the Royal Family of England. Long maturation time in Bollinger's cellar allows for the perfect development of complex aromas. Time allows the aromas of the yeasts to develop in their individual way. Bollinger's R.D is aged in the cellars for a much extended period before only being disgorged just before release. This is top quality Champagne for a special occasion.
