Bollinger R.D. 2007: 96 points
“Minerally on the nose, with accents of sea breeze and brine, transitions on the palate to a deep and finely-knit range of ripe nectarine and dried white cherry fruit, chopped almond and espresso crema, and hints of tangerine peel, saffron and ground cardamom. Fine and lacy in texture, this is sleek and mouth-watering through to the finish, where the salinity returns, echoing a lasting note. Disgorged July 2020. Drink now through 2032.” —A.N.
Bollinger Rosé half bottles and La Grande Année Rosé were both included in David Williams’ top Fizz choices for the Observer Magazine. David Williams comments, “With large parties rather unlikely, a half-bottle, such as Bollinger’s typically rich and savoury rosé, is just right for two, and works very well with food.
As indeed can the same producer’s La Grande Année Rosé 2012, a superbly complex wine from a great vintage for blowing any savings you’ve made from missing that expensive NYE night out.”
Finally, Bollinger featured in the most recent issue of Decanter, in a spotlight on champagne fine wine sales. The article mentions that Bollinger La Grande Année 2012 was one of the top 5 most traded champagnes by value on Liv-ex’s global marketplace in 2021.
