Heiner Lobenberg über:
Champagne R.D. Extra Brut 2007


Lobenberg: Der R.D besteht zu einem Großteil aus Grand Cru Lagen und einem geringen Anteil Premier Crus. Die eigentliche Besonderheit ist aber die lange Reifezeit, die der Champagner auf der Flasche verbringt. Ein hochnobler Champagner, der pure Eleganz verströmt und enormen Tiefgang besitzt. Riecht nach frischem Brioche, etwas Karamell, Macadamianuss. Bleibt aber immer frisch und lebendig. Ein äußerst fülliger Champagner mit reifen Noten aber knackiger Säure. Eine der feinsten Prestige-Cuvées. Kann übrigens enorm auf der Flasche reifen! 98/100


Suckling über: Champagne R.D. Extra Brut

-- Suckling: What an amazing nose this has, like the smell of a rock pool on a rocky coast, but with so many candied-fruit, spicy and mushroom notes behind that. That fruit is way more expressive on the powerful and structured palate with lime freshness and chalky minerality at the super-long, bone-dry finish. Disgorged 28th May, 2021. 98/100


Falstaff über: Champagne R.D. Extra Brut

-- Falstaff: Mittleres Grüngelb, Goldreflexe, feines, stabiles Mousseux. Etwas Biskuit, feiner Blütenhonig, weißer Nougat, kandierte Orangenzesten unterlegt mit saftigen gelben Kernobstnuancen und reifen Ringlotten, ein Hauch von Limetten. Komplex, saftig, weiße Birnenfrucht, sehr finessenreich strukturiert, mineralischer, zart fruchtsüßer Abgang, besitzt große Länge, ein facettenreicher Speisenbegleiter mit Entwicklungspotenzial. 98/100


Wine Enthusiast über: Champagne R.D. Extra Brut

-- Wine Enthusiast: R.D., or Recenty Disgorged, is a Bollinger hallmark. This wine has stayed on its lees for many years before release, giving it intensity, maturity and great depth. The wine is powerful, concentrated and elegant. Drink now. 98/100


Parker über: Champagne R.D. Extra Brut

-- Parker: Disgorged on July 10, 2020, with three grams per liter dosage, Bollinger's eagerly awaited 2007 Extra-Brut R. D. is beautiful, unwinding in the glass with aromas of crisp orchard fruit, citrus pith and white flowers mingled with hints of honey, orange oil, buttery pastry, English walnuts and delicately spicy bass notes. Full-bodied, vibrant and incisive, it's unusually elegant and structurally fine-boned for what is routinely one of Champagne's more muscular tête de cuvées, with a bright spine of acidity that's cloaked in vibrant, concentrated fruit, complemented by a pearly pinpoint mousse and concluding with an intensely sapid finish. Long and penetrating, this is a tightly coiled R. D. that will reward bottle age. 97/100


Galloni über: Champagne R.D. Extra Brut

-- Galloni: Bollinger’s 2007 R.D. is superb, but it is also a wine that reflects the nature of a unique and challenging growing season. In most vintages the R.D. is marked by the distinct creaminess and breadth of Aÿ Pinot Noir. Two thousand seven, though, was a difficult year marked by very dry weather, rain at the end of the growing season and an early harvest in August, something that was not as common as it has become. Selection was essential. For the 2007, the blend is composed of just 14 villages compared to the more typical 18-25. Verzenay is the main Pinot component while Cramant plays the leading role in the Chardonnays. For these reasons, the 2007 is an R.D. driven by more focus, energy and tension than readers are used to seeing. Lemon confit, dried flowers, sage, mint, crushed rocks, almond and ginger are some of the aromas and flavors that give the 2007 its complex, multi-faceted personality. The 2007 can be enjoyed now, but I would prefer to cellar it for a few years. It will age effortlessly for decades as it moves through the various phases of its life. I was reminded of the way Champagne can magically traverse time by magical bottles of the 1976 R.D. and 1996 Vieilles Vignes Françaises I tasted recently. The blend is 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay, 91% Grand Cru fruit and the rest Premier Cru. Bollinger fans will notice the return of the original label, with the disgorgement date clearly visible, a tribute to Madame Bollinger, who was a pioneer in so many ways. Disgorged: July 10, 2020. Dosage is 3 grams per liter. 97/100


Jancis Robinson über: Champagne R.D. Extra Brut

-- Jancis Robinson: Rich and mushroomy in Bollinger style on the nose with a notably dry finish. I think I might stand a good chance of identifying this wine blind… 18,5/20
