The week in pictures: Hong Kong

At the launch event of Bollinger’s R.D. 2004 in Hong Kong, the Champagne house’s deputy cellar master Denis Bunner showcased three versions of R.D. 2004 each with a different dosage side by side, namely Brut Nature (zero dosage), Extra Brut (0-6 grams/l) and Brut (less than 12 grams/l). The tasting was meant to demonstrate how the dosage affects a wine on the palate. The 2004 R.D.’s dosage is 3g/l, one gram lower than the previous release of the R.D. 2002.

Below are the wines with different dosage. From left to right R.D. 2004 (zero dosage), R.D. 2004 with 3 grams and R.D. 2004 with 8 grams. The second one is the one that has been released onto the market, while the other two are purely for experiments and comparison.
