This magnum bottle of 1988 R.D. comes with a limited edition two-part crystal glass cooler, created by Crystal Saint-Louis to celebrate the release of Spectre. This piece is one of only 307 and bears the 007 gun-barrel imagery on its base and the symbol of Spectre on its top.
R.D. stands for 'Recemment Degorge', or recent disgorgement. These wines, first created by Madame Bollinger in 1967, are aged on their lees for many years and intended to be drunk very soon after disgorgement in order to enjoy its freshness! This being said, Bollinger R.D. wines have remarkable aging potential. The crisp freshness is accentuated by the low dosage, ultimately containing between three and four grams of sugar per litre.
The House of Bollinger was founded in the village of Ay in the Vallee de La Marne in 1829. This is one of the key centres of excellence in Champagne production, with 100% Grands Crus Vineyards surrounding the property.
Jacques Bollinger took over the family firm in 1918 from his father George, it was Jacques' marriage to Emily Law de Lauriston Bourbers known as "Lilly" which pushed the Bollinger brand onto new heights as she was a great ambassador, travelling the world tirelessly to promote the great wines. She famously said...
"I drink it when I’m happy and when I’m sad. Sometimes I drink it when I’m alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I’m not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise, I never touch it..unless I’m thirsty."
