Vintage Bollinger 1999 RD Champagne gift (two bottle size) Magnum in wooden box

Bollinger - RD Recemment Degorge 1999 Magnum in presentation case

Tasting notes, Wine Journal, rating 90 points
Tasted at home from a sample sent by Bollinger
this was disgorged in January 2011.
It has a very tight bouquet with fresh lime,
gunflint and citrus lemon with fine delineation.
The palate is quite sharp and citrus-like on the entry.
There is a slight shrillness in the background and you might describe
the finish as a little “clinical”, perhaps like the 1996 RD
but without the same ethereal level of complexity. I found this perfectly fine
R.D. stands for "Récemment Dégorgé", recently disgorged: Madame Bollinger created this legendary vintage in 1967, giving the world the opportunity to taste a champagne aged on lees for an exceptionally long time. Her great vision? Enabling knowledgeable wine connoisseurs to share a very special moment, when very recently disgorged wine is as fresh and aromatic as ever. It was a small revolution in the world of champagne. The daring Bollinger R.D. could only become James Bond’s favourite champagne.

Bollinger R.D. will enhance all gourmet cuisine but its aura is such that it creates a special occasion on its own. Offering it as a gift is a sign of a great friendship.
In order to fully appreciate its unique style, bouquet and aromas, it is best served between 8 and 10°C, or more.
Bollinger R.D. can be enjoyed right away to appreciate the exceptional freshness due to its recent disgorging; you may also choose to let it mature further: its ageing potential is endless.
