BOLLINGER RD 1990
Ø Characteristics of the year 1990
There was no winter frost in 1990, but after an early spring Champagne suffered from severe late frosts. Flowering started very early, at the end of May. Due to the cold weather it lasted until the end of June, which caused coulure (flower shatter) and millerandage (partial crop failure and mixed berry size), particularly in Pinot Noir. Then the climate was quite dry until the harvest.
The harvest started mid-September. Grapes were healthy and of nice quality, with yields variable from one cru to another (from 6,000 to 12,600 kg/ha), with an average over 11,500 kg/ha.

Ø RD 1990
Grape were harvested exclusively from Champagne’s grands and premiers cru vineyards. 16 crus were used in the assemblage (blend) of RD 1990, 67% from grands crus and 33% from premiers crus. These were mainly from the villages of Aÿ, Bouzy, Louvois, Verzenay, Mesnil s/Oger, Oger and Cuis.
The blend of R.D. 1990 is composed of:
69% Pinot Noir
Ø Vinification of R.D. 1990
R.D. 1990 was produced exclusively from the cuvée (first grape pressing).
The first fermentation took place in small oak casks (205, 225 and 410 litres), lot by lot, cru by cru, and grape variety by grape variety. This allows Bollinger to use a very strict selection process. Bollinger only uses old casks (5 years old or older) to ensure that neither tannin nor oak flavors are imparted to the wines. This method increases both the aromatic complexity and the ageing capacity of great wines.
Ø R.D. 1990 ages in the cellars under natural cork
The wines were bottled for second fermentation and ageing using real cork stoppers, which ensure a better barrier against oxidation than crown caps, and then aged in Bollinger’s cellars. Using cork stoppers, quite rare today in Champagne, guarantees freshness and allows aromas to fully develop their bouquet.
After extra-long aging and disgorgement by hand, R.D. 1990 rested for a minimum of three months prior to shipment. This is the necessary amount of time for the wine to assimilate the liqueur d’expédition (dosage) and recover from the shock of disgorgement.
