Bollinger R.D. 2002 ranked first in the final list established by all tasters, with Jancis Robinson gave the exceptional score of 19/20:
● Bollinger, RD Extra Brut 2002 Champagne:
Disgorged October 2014. RS 4 g/l. 60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay. From Bollinger's UK agent Mentzendorff.
"Tasted blind. Dark gold. Mushrooms (a mature Bollinger trademark), savour and density with a dry finish. Definitely Bollinger RD. Some refinement too. Reminds me a little of a fine sake – umami? 19"
The 15 wines we tasted included the crème de la crème of champagnes, with such stars of the firmament as Salon, Krug, Dom Pérignon and Cristal, not to mention Bollinger RD, Taittinger Comtes de Champagne, Dom Ruinart, Pol Roger Sir Winston Churchill, Gosset Celebris, Philipponnat Clos des Goisses, Perrier Jouët Belle Epoque, Lanson Noble Cuvée and Pommery Cuvée Louise.
