Bollinger RD starting with the 1952 released in 1961.There have been 27 vintages of RD

18 Dec

The tasting of recently disgorged Bollinger’s was held to celebrate fifty years since the release of the debut 1952. It was tutored by chef de caveMathieu Kauffmann and he began with an overview of Bollinger RD…

There have been 27 vintages of RD starting with the 1952 released in 1961. It starts in the vineyard with the selection of the grapes. We press the grapes, make the vinification and do the malolactic vinification in barrels. We do the first tasting after racking and a second tasting in December as we prepare the assemblage. Each vintage there are about 2,000 barrels and choose the best ones.
(Just in case readers were wondering, the RD vintages are: 1952, 1953, 1955, 1959, 1961, 1964, 1966, 1969, 1970, 1973, 1975, 1976, 1979, 1981, 1982, 1985, 1988, 1990, 1995, 1996, 1997 and 1999.)
