Is there a better quote in the wine business than when Lilly Bollinger was asked when she drinks Champagne?
“I drink my Champagne when I’m happy and when I’m sad. Sometimes I drink it when I’m alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I’m not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise I never touch it — unless I’m thirsty.”
Bollinger is not just a Champagne house, it is a place where the past meets with the future. There is no place like it in the world. Bollinger still believes in true craftsmanship from making their own barrels to working with clones to bringing back vines that have disappeared, as well as preserving ungrafted vines pre-Phylloxera.
This is a great year to be friends with Bollinger! The release of the 2002 RD has hit our stocks. 2002 is considered the 50th anniversary vintage, and what a vintage it is to celebrate with! 2002 is widely considered EPIC, with many thinking that the 2002 vintage will be a match for the 1988, 1989 and 1990 vintages! Some might say it is as rich as the ‘90 with the elegance and restraint of the ‘88.
Terry Thiese, one of the most respected Champagne authorities, advises:
“The great wines of this excellent vintage offer everything the Champagne lover could ask for; focused aromas with flowers leading a charge including fruits and spices; textures of restrained power and keen expressiveness; flavors showing classic parameters, nothing out-of-the-way. Certainly a marvelous vintage.”

“Madame Bollinger created this legendary wine with the 1952 vintage, giving the world the opportunity to taste a champagne aged on the lees for an exceptionally long time. Bollinger R.D. allows wine connoisseurs a very special moment, when very recently disgorged wine is as fresh and aromatic as ever. It is a small revolution in the world of Champagne. Aromas of ripe fruit and a discreet note of honey are followed by roasted notes and cocoa, which give way to flavors of star anise and nutmeg. Full-bodied and rich, Bollinger R.D. 2002 is a powerful, well-balanced wine with persistent flavor.” - Bollinger
