Description

A bottle of 1985 Bollinger RD Extra Brut Champagne, bottled in 1999.

'RD' stands for 'récemment dégorgé', or 'recently discorged'. This style was first introduced by Madame Bollinger in 1961 for the 1952 La Grande Année vintage. Disgorgement is a process in Champagne making which involves the removal of the frozen sediment collected at the neck of the inverted bottle. RD Champagnes are aged on their lees for longer than most vintage releases, resulting in a more mature and complex wine.

The label carries a royal warrant by appointment to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

This Bollinger RD 1985 sold at our online auction for £230
