Bollinger R.D. 1985 was purchased in its original wooden box alongside information. It is in excellent condition.
Only the very best vintages are elevated to Bollinger R.D. status. This unique expression of the generous and ripe 2004 vintage is a blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from 16 Grand and Premier Cru sites, which has been aged for more than 13 years.
Bollinger was the first Champagne House to market the Late Disgorged concept, with the trademark RD (Récemment Degorgée). Late Disgorged refers to a Champagne that has been kept on its lees for much longer than usual (up to ten years) between bottling and disgorging. The wine feeds off its lees throughout this time, acquiring great complexity, depth and richness.
Bollinger is one of the world’s most iconic Champagnes. Established in the early 19th century by Jacques Bollinger and Paul Renaudin, Bollinger remains under the control of the wider family and is synonymous with rich, complex, classic Pinot Noir dominated Champagnes with great aging potential. Around 75% of Bollinger’s grapes are harvested from its own vineyards to ensure quality.
