Production Blend of the 2007 vintage: 70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay. 14 crus: 91% Grands crus and 9% Premiers crus. Exclusive use of the cuvée. Fermentation entirely in oak barrels. Only the very best vintages are elevated to the level of Bollinger R.D.: the 2007 vintage is characterised by remarkable precision and energy. Maturation: A very long maturation, more than four times longer than required by the appellation, for an infinite array of flavours: a true wine alchemy. Maturation carried out under natural cork. Dosage: Very low. “Extra Brut”, 3 grams per litre.
Sensations To the eye: Intense shimmers of gold. To the nose: Complex on the nose with aromas of honey and brioche. This is followed by a host of spices (ginger, cumin, caraway and more), before evolving into notes of mirabelle plum, dried apricot and fresh hazelnut. On the palate: A lively and clean opening that reveals notes of white plum, walnut and aniseed. Its freshness is beautiful and its tension incredible
