William Kelley, Wine Advocate - 97 points "Bollinger's superb 2007 R. D. is an unusually delicate, fine-boned rendition of this habitually muscular cuvée… While I don't tend to comment on packaging, Bollinger's decision to revive the tasteful aluminium label that graced this cuvée's debut 1952 rendition, when the redoubtable Madame Lilly Bollinger still presided over this house, does underscore what is a real and not merely superficial commitment to artisanal traditions. "
Antonio Galloni, Vinous - 97 points "Bollinger's 2007 R.D. is superb, but it is also a wine that reflects the nature of a unique and challenging growing season…the 2007 is an R.D. driven by more focus, energy and tension than readers are used to seeing. Lemon confit, dried flowers, sage, mint, crushed rocks, almond and ginger are some of the aromas and flavours that give the 2007 its complex, multi-faceted personality."

Champagne Bollinger was founded in 1829 by Joseph Bollinger and Athanase de Villermont. The company built a reputation for quality through the years in both France and England but it was the arrival of a lady of Scottish decent, Elizabeth Law Lauriston-Boubers who married Jacques Bollinger in 1923 that set the house on the path of greatness. Lily or Madame Bollinger as she was known with her graceful charm was the driving force behind Bollinger R.D., a brilliant brand ambassador and dauntless businesswomen. The brand is today famous for its association with James Bond and Patsy from Absolutely Fabulous – what an amazing marriage that would have made!
