Wines Of The Week: Champagne Edition

Forbes contributor Brian Freedman selected Bollinger R.D. 2007 as one of his top Champagne recommendations of the year.

He writes, “Aromas of deeply concentrated lemon oils and preserved lemon, apricot pits, chalky minerality that seems to go a mile deep, honey-glazed almonds, coffee oils, and the suggestion of mushrooms: What a transporting nose. On the palate, this is so energetic and linear, coiled with tension, and boasts flashes of fresh ginger, lemongrass, lime leaf, and Provencal apricots finding length and real tensile strength on the finish. This is a really remarkable wine, with lingering notes of salted caramel fascinatingly spiced with fennel seeds. This will reward cellaring for the next 30-plus years, but it’s also terrific right now.”
