Key Information

Other Information

  • ABV12%

R.D. ('recently disgorged') was proposed for the first time by Madame Bollinger in 1961 on the basis of the 1952 vintage. This concept is unique, absolutely without equivalent in Champagne.

In terms of blending, R.D. is a Grand Annee, but a Grande Annee that has aged in the Bollinger cellars for a longer period: a minimum of eight years and up to 20-25 years.

This slow maturation allows for reinforcing the aromatic subtlety and complexity of the wine, developing a highly original style recognised and appreciated by connoisseurs of great wines.

R.D. is also a recent disgorging that guarantees unique freshness and vivacity as regards the wine's venerable age and which allows the aromas to fully express themselves.

In order to inform the consumer the disgorging date is printed on the label.

By nature, the R.D. boasts a nearly-unlimited capacity for conservation, before of after disgorging.

R.D. is an 'extra-brut', i.e. the dosage is very low (less than 5 grammes of sugar per litre).
