R.D. (meaning Recently Disgorged) is exclusively produced with wines from the cuve juice. The first fermentation of R.D. is always 100% carried out in oak barrels - which has become quite unique in Champagne. The Cru are fermented in small oak barrels (205 - 225 and 410 litres) - which enables a rigourous selection. Bollinger only uses old barrels (5 years and more) - in order to generate neither an oaky taste nor tannins. This method reinforces the aromatic complexity and the ageing potential of the wines. Once the wine is bottled - the carbonic fermantation and cellar ageing are conducted under natural cork. This enables a better protection against oxidation compared with a metal crown cap. This method - nowadays very seldom used in champagne - is a guarantee of freshness. It allows the aromas to preserve all their bouquet.
