Review: Bollinger - R. D. Extra Brut - 2008
Bollinger logo
Submitted: 6th March 2024

- [x] R.D(Recently Disgorged): It declares the sparkling wine has been disgorged less than a year before its release – and after ageing for more than twice as long as most vintage wines

- [x] In the case of my recent exploration with this Bollinger ; it was disgorged on 9th December 2022.

- [x] Rating: 4/5(for me it was outstanding)

About the champagne: R.D. 2008 Extra brut is sourced from a total of 18 crus, 84% of which are Grand Cru and 16% of which are Premier Cru.

2008 was an exceptional year marked by a bountiful yield of Pinot Noir and magnificent Chardonnay.

Bollinger R.D. 2008 spent 14 yeras aging on the lees resulting to an extraordinary range of primary, secondary and tertiary characteristics that come in a frame of almost unimaginable tension of developed richness and freshness.


- [x] Appearance: Bright in colour with gold reflections.

- [x] Aroma: complex fruity notes of acacia, apricot and honey, breadcrumbs accompanied by fresh notes of bergamot. 

- [x] Palate: A very rich, precise mousse, Citrus notes are accompanied by flavors of ripe plums and peaches. 

- [x] Finish: Notes of fresh hazelnuts and salinity combine to create an intense, everlasting flavorful and lightly oxidized wine at the finish 

- [x] A very extraordinary wine which unfolds to reveal exceptional complexity.
