The Prestigious Bollinger R.D. 2002

Comprised of 23 Crus—71% Grand Cru and 29% Premier Cru—and aged more than three times longer than appellation rules require, Bollinger R.D. 2002 is an extraordinary display of complexity, texture and flavour. This vintage Champagne is "true wine alchemy."

October 2016


It's striking that is as fresh as it is given the ten years in the cellars. It has a fine citrus nose with plenty of lemons, grapefruit and yellow chalky notes, not to mention some lighter floral elements. The palate is super dry (dosage at 3-4g), and there's a silky, sherbet-like texture that makes this smooth, fine and long. The citrus flavors give way to surging acidity and the finish twists very slowly through to lightly toasted cashew nuts mingled with complex fruit and citrus flavors. Disgorged 22nd October, 2013.

Anthony Gismondi, July 2016


Waiting for my glass to arrive at the tasting, I thought what could go wrong? The 2002 vintage is first rate, R.D. is always an experience and Bollinger never really ever screws it up. Guess what, this wine is the Holy Grail. I suppose it's why I taste so much ordinary wine; I constantly hope that someday it will all end up like this. Okay, dreaming aside, this is a fabulous bottle of bubble. Rich and creamy, bursting with acidity that propels the nutty nuanced brioche and mineral, honeyed palate to another level. Long, persistent, entertaining and brimming with weight and intensity it still walks a fine line of acidity and tightness that makes it electric on the palate. So long on the lees, it is now a history lesson in 2002 champagne. Beg, borrow (maybe not steal) the money but buy a bottle and experience one of the great mysteries of wine. The details are: 60/40 pinot noir/chardonnay; 23 crus: 71% Grand Crus, 29% Premier Cru; the dosage is a very low: 3 to 4 grams per liter or Extra Brut.

About CHAMPAGNE BOLLINGER

CHAMPAGNE BOLLINGER

Bollinger is a truly classic Champagne house and one of the world’s greatest wine producers, renowned for its elegance and refinement. Founded in 1829 in the village of Ay, by 1884 Bollinger received a Royal Warrant from Queen Victoria. Adding to its prestige, 1979 marked the beginning of one of the longest standing relationships in cinematic history; Bollinger has been the exclusive Champagne of James Bond ever since.
