Description

Bollinger R.D. 1996 Champagne is presented in a Prestige Bollinger RD Gift Box. Bollinger R.D.’s (Recently Disgorged) are very limited editions. The R.D. 1996 rested minimum three months in the cellar after disgorging and before shipping. This is the necessary time for the wine to assimilate the “dosage” and to recover suitable balance for tasting. 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. In 1963, the first bottles of what was to become the legendary Bollinger R.D. appeared on the market. Madame Bollinger decided, in agreement with the House’s New York-based agent to release a limited quantity of bottles of “Réserve 1947” in the United States. The intention was to “create some competition for the special bottles”, in other words “Prestige cuvées” that other Champagne Houses were putting on the market at the time. Madame Bollinger’s great idea was to choose an older vintage that was disgorged late and prepared like an Extra Brut. This was a daring move at a time when aged Champagnes were not fashionable, but the House put into practice the strong intuitive belief that the oxidative stress of disgorging would give great freshness to the future Bollinger R.D.
