The Robb Report published an article commemorating the release of Champagne Bollinger R.D 2008. “It was launched in Paris at the 18th century Hotel de la Marine, a museum that housed France’s naval ministry for 200 years. Presented by Bollinger chef de cave Denis Bunner and Charles-Armand de Belenet, the house’s managing director, the Champagne was poured from bottle, magnum and double magnum, paired with a lunch that featured Italian hazelnuts in each course, in homage to the notes of hazelnut the wine exhibits. As de Belen et explained, “The contrast between the freshness of the wine and the hazelnut’s generous flavor profile means that Bollinger R.D. 2008 is able to fully express its aromas and reveal itself in all its splendor.”Bollinger_Robb Report_3.28.23
A small revolution in the world of Champagne. In 1967, Bollinger releases R.D. 1952. There is no comparable Champagne on the market at the time. This bold and brilliant Champagne takes the pillars of what makes Champagne Bollinger so unique, and pushes them to their ultimate level. It is, very simply, a masterpiece.
Bollinger is one of the rare Grande Marques that’s still family owned. Known for its rich, elegant and polished style of Champagne, their outstanding wines are the result of rigorous attention to detail and incredibly labor-intensive practices that few houses are willing to undertake. Underscoring its excellence, Bollinger has remained British secret agent James Bond's Champagne of choice since 1973.
