Description & Technical Information
-
Madame Bollinger created the first vintage of this now legendary prestige cuvée in 1961 with the launch of R.D. 1952. An acronym for Recently Disgorged, Bollinger R.D. is the result of Madame Bollinger's great vision: an expert wine with aromas enhanced by its exceptionally long maturation in the Bollinger family cellars - more than three times longer than required. Bollinger R.D. is also James Bond's favourite champagne.

Weather: The 1976 season was a warm vintage overall, with flowering in early June. A very hot and dry summer produced grapes of great maturity and quality with very high potential alcohol levels. Champagnes from this vintage are rich, vinous and soft with heaps of character without overbearing strength.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 95% Grand & Premier Cru
Grape Varieties: 65% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay
Ageing: 36 years on the lees
Disgorged: March 2013
Dosage: 3-4 g/l

Tasting Note: The 1976 harvest was remembered for the very hot and dry summer weather which produced grapes of great maturity and flavour. This champagne is rich and vinous. A charming deep gold colour with huge amounts of fruit present throughout, the finish is long and bold with alluring toasty notes.
