Smells like an oloroso Sherry.. Baked apple/pear cinnamon, Marcona almond paste, caramel. High acid, pronounced intensity, long finish with pronounced minerality.

Bollinger’s 1982 R.D., disgorged in 1995, makes for a great palate cleanser. Mature, but with enough freshness to drink well for at least another handful of years, the 1982 is a fabulous example of just how well Champagne can age with proper storage. Hints of almond, chamomile, mint, dried pear and baked apple leave a lasting impression in this super-polished, silky Bollinger. The 1982 retains quite a bit of freshness, especially considering it was disgorged more than a decade ago. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, May 2016)
