RD (meaning recently disgorged) is exclusively produced with wines from the cuvee juice. The first fermentation of Bollinger RD is always 100% carried out in oak barrels, which has become quite unique in champagne.intense, taut and full flavoured, with complex toasty notes and bright citrus freshness.

Since 1952, small parcels of certain vintages of La Grande Année have been kept on the lees for extended ageing, and then released years later as this unique wine. Only the most promising of the Bollinger La Grande Annee vintages can hope to become R.D.

These cuvees are given even more time in the cellar to encourage the slow evolution of aromas, as well as a redefinition of structure and a lingering finish. The lively freshness amazes and enchants, while the aromatic expression intrigues.

These wines improve with age and may be enjoyed immediately or allowed to continue ageing after disgorgement, reserving additional characteristics for the future. Bollinger R.D. wines are both a homage to the best that the terroir and time has to offer and a gift to lovers of great wines.
