Heiner Lobenberg über:
Champagne R.D. Flaschengärung 2004


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


Parker über: Champagne R.D. Flaschengärung

-- Parker: Fermented in oak barrels and aged under natural corks for almost 13 years, Bollinger's 2004 R. D. Extra Brut blends 66% Pinot Noir with 34% Chardonnay from 16 crus, 88% of which are classified as Grand Cru. The wine opens with a very clear, deep, rich and aromatic but also pure and mineral-fresh nose of crushed rocks, cherries, brioche, pain aux raisin, white nougat, chalk and ripe, yellow-fleshed fruits. Highly elegant and complex on the weightless yet persistent and salty palate, this is an intense, densely woven, firmly structured yet elegant, beautifully refined and refreshing 'recent disgorgement' (February 2018) that reveals just a kiss of oxidative flavors that adds even more complexity. A great Champagne on its way to improve over many years in the bottle. 97/100


Suckling über: Champagne R.D. Flaschengärung

-- Suckling: A superb moment for this late-disgorged vintage Champagne. All the complexity and fruit are here, in the right proportions, on the nose and palate. Grilled peaches, grapefruit, lemons, hazelnuts, espresso and more. Super long, majestic and so rewardingly complex. 97/100


Winespectator über: Champagne R.D. Flaschengärung

-- Winespectator: The lovely nose of acacia blossom, toast and graphite leads to flavors of poached quince, fleur de sel, white cherry, lemon pith and almond skin in this dry and harmonious Champagne. Almost airy and ethereal in texture, yet the finely woven flavor range goes on and on, echoing on the finish. Disgorged June 2017. Drink now through 2034. 301 cases imported. 96/100


Galloni über: Champagne R.D. Flaschengärung

-- Galloni: Bollinger’s 2004 R.D., tasted from magnum, is all class. Silky and understated, the R.D is super-expressive and inviting today. In 2004, the R.D. is decidedly light on its feet and more perfumed than tends to be the norm at Bollinger. Candied lemon peel, mint, apricot, pastry and yellow fruits are all laced together in a Champagne that delivers the goods. 96/100


Jancis Robinson über: Champagne R.D. Flaschengärung

-- Jancis Robinson: Quite different to the regular bottle, with much more autolytic character and riper fruit too with a sort of orange peel fruit. Has the same slight honeyed note and generous flinty note. Not the biggest in terms of sheer weight, but certainly packed full of flavour. 18,5/20
