RD 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, in the case of the 2002, disgorgement took place in October 2014.
Rich, pronounced and powerful on the palate, which is beautifully defined with notes of baked apples, brioche, sweet spice, white flowers and truffle. The palate is precise with focused acidity and a bone dry finish. A sensational champagne that would be perfect alongside a wild mushroom risotto.
