Bollinger RD 2002 Vintage Champagne, the Wine Advocate rating 95 points

Bollinger RD 2002 vintage Champagne,
It would be known as Bollinger R.D. and its label was the first ever to specify a disgorgement date. Bollinger R.D. 2007 Champagne now once again sports all the codes of this legendary label: material, font and date of disgorging. Authenticity through the years.

Wine Advocate rating 95 points, tasting notes

I've encountered some bottle variation with Bollinger's 2002 R. D., but this example, disgorged in 2016, was showing especially well, offering up a deep bouquet of dried fruits, orange zest, mocha, spices, English walnuts and hazelnuts. Full-bodied, broad and enveloping, with a pillowy, seamless profile and a fleshy core, it concludes with a long, sapid finish.

Bollinger 2002 Champagne R. D. is beautiful, unwinding in the glass with aromas of crisp orchard fruit, citrus pith and white flowers mingled with hints of honey, orange oil, buttery pastry, English walnuts and delicately spicy bass notes. Full-bodied, vibrant and incisive, it's unusually elegant and structurally fine-boned for what is routinely one of Champagne's more muscular tête de cuvées, with a bright spine of acidity that's cloaked in vibrant, concentrated fruit, complemented by a pearly pinpoint mousse and concluding with an intensely sapid finish. Long and penetrating, this is a tightly coiled R. D. that will reward bottle age.

Blend of the 2002 vintage Champagne
70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay.
14 crus: 91% Grands crus and 9% Premiers crus.
Exclusive use of the cuvée. Fermentation entirely in oak barrels.
Only the very best vintages are elevated to the level of Bollinger R.D.: the 2007 vintage is characterised by remarkable precision and energy.

Maturation
A very long maturation, more than four times longer than required by the appellation, for an infinite array of flavours: a true wine alchemy.
Maturation carried out under natural cork.

Recent disgorgement
Bollinger R.D.2002 is released only a few months after it is disgorged.
This recent disgorgement guarantees the remarkable freshness of the wine.
