Bollinger, R.D (Magnum), Champagne 1996

The colour at 20 years is reassuring in magnum, a slow unhurried green-gold evolution with no dark spots. This has the vigorous bouncy acidity of the ’96 Grande Année. A real alpha male of a wine, the extra lees of the R.D help to deliver meaty leathery notes and a lovely bouquet of mushrooms and truffles. Save this for a very indulgent dinner.
