The R.D. champagne, James Bond's favourite, stands as the ultra-prestige of the Maison Bollinger. The secret of this cuvee is time. Back in 1952 Madame Bollinger launched this spectacular innovation, thus tailoring a wine for eternity. Time indeed remains the key element for the finest wines as it extends and achieves in the cellars what the terroir has given and the oenologist has magnified. Therefore, a very strict selection is made within the heart of the various cuvees of "La Grande Année Bollinger", in order to determine the vintage which will belong to the unique listing of the R.D. For these vintages, the Maison Bollinger allows time to fulfill its work, enabling aromas to reach a fuller expression, and letting its structure to gain precision and a patina of age. Also, thanks to a very light dosage, the deepest truth of the wine comes to light, through the natural expression of an exceptional freshness, along with a free exacerbation of the aromas. A perfect alchemy thus appears, matching magic to amazement, and offering to the wine the opportunity to reveal itself in length.
