bollinger RD 2007

Bollinger, R.D. 2007

RRP £195

2007 is a rather scarcely declared vintage and not one celebrated for its Pinot Noir, yet Bollinger has managed to create something so fresh and delicious. The secret lies in rigorous selection and an unusually high proportion of crunchy Verzenay fruit (29%). The cool, fruity nose comes with golden raisins, yellow apple, orange zest, juniper wood and ginger. The palate has rare energy and tension for an RD, extremely driven and pure. All in all, this seems like a really slowly ageing RD worth cellaring.
