R.D. or "Recently Disgorged" is one of Bollinger's more unique creations.
The blend is the same as that of "Grande Année" but the R.D. particularity is due to its much longer ageing on the lees and, as its name implies, its recent disgorging.
Ageing on the lees helps retain freshness and allows the champagne to develop greater complexity and subtlety.
A pedigree cuveé that has spent years in the house cellars and emerges today with a tempting nose of melon and flaky pastry.
Rich, full bodied and delicious, this American doughnut generously doused in cinnamon and maple syrup just begs to be sampled.
