BOLLINGER R.D. Extra Brut, Champagne 2004

Bollinger’s RD is an icon among préstige cuvée Champagnes. R.D stands for Récemment Dégorgé, (recently disgorged) and Bollinger was the first to produce an RD style, with the initial RD release from the legendary 1967 vintage. Since that time, Bollinger RD has garnered a strong following among wine connoisseurs. The combination of long ageing on lees followed by recent disgorgement offers the best of both worlds; immense complexity and delightful freshness. The 2002 vintage is a blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay. The low dosage of 3-4g/l highlights the impeccable quality of the base wine.

Region Champagne

Located 150 km east of Paris, Champagne is the French wine region renowned for producing the finest, most rich and complex sparkling wines in the world. The elegance, longevity and racy acidity of these wines are attributed to the influence of the chalky soils of the region and the cool, marginal continental climate. The region spans an area of 35,000 ha and has 4 main growing areas, each favouring one of the three noble Champagne varieties; Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. Champagne has a vineyard quality hierarchy based on the soils, aspect and overall quality of the grapes. Like Burgundy, these quality designations are allocated to the vineyards of the village. Of the 319 villages of Champagne, 17 have Grand Cru status and 44 villages are designated Premier Cru. All Champagne is produced by Traditional Method. The vast majority of Champagne is a blend of the three varieties and may also be a blend of several vintages producing the popular Non Vintage (NV) house styles. Top quality blends from exceptional years are sold as Vintage (Millésime) Champagne.
