($150) Pale copper color. Classic Bollinger aromas of controlled oxidation: oatmeal, walnut, sauteed porcini, toffee, beeswax and earth. Rich, leesy and powerful, with flavors of butter, toasted almond and nuts. Densely packed and harmonious. More youthful in the mouth than the nose suggests. Very long and strong on the aftertaste. (Dreyfus-Ashby, New York, NY)

More mute and more potent than the exotic Grande Année of the same year. The wine has acquired R. D. character by this time and it is difficult to predict how long it will be on top. What further complicates the matter is that this R. D. wine is going to be disgorged several times, which makes it almost impossible to predict the development of the bottle one is about to drink. One guess is that this wine is going to peak two years after disgorging into a normal bottle, and three to four years after disgorging into a magnum. The wine itself has a pronounced house-character, with great masculine fleshiness and mushroom notes combined with dark chocolate and windfall fruit.

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, this is a tour de force. Endless finish.
