A full-bodied powerful Champagne featuring biscuit and ginger aromas and flavors picking up a grilled nut character on the finish. Very firmly structured and dry yet with the flavor intensity and fine texture to match...

The 1990 Bollinger R.D. is drinking very well at age twenty-four, offering up a deep and complex bouquet of peach, gentle notes of honeycomb, wheat toast, a complex base of soil, plenty of smokiness and a topnote of orange peel. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, crisp and complex, with a fine core of fruit, refined mousse, excellent acidity, just a hint of the oxidation that is soon to arrive, and fine length and grip on the focused and classy finish. Unless one is really a fan of the oxidative side of old Champagne, this is probably a very good time to be drinking up the 1990 Bollinger R.D., for thought its lovely acidity is going to carry it for many more years to come, it is going to show the first signs of maderization in the not too distant future. But, for drinking over the relative near-term, this is still a lovely glass of bubbly. 2013- 2025+.
