Description

Pol Roger is perhaps best known as Winston Churchill’s favourite Champagne. The house remains family-owned and has a reputation for producing champagnes of finesse and elegance which age very well.  The Pol Roger Rosé Vintage is based on the Brut Vintage (60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay) to which is added, before the bottling and second fermentation, approximately 15% of still red wine (Pinot Noir) from the best crus of the Montagne de Reims. Produced only in limited quantities, the Brut Rosé Vintage 2015 is aged in the cellars before being released onto the market.

Tasting Notes

The 2018 Brut Rosé opens to a superb bouquet revealing scents of plums, red berries, pastry, almond, mandarin orange and lemon oil complemented by classy autolytic notes. On the palate, this remarkable rosé has a tauter and more fine-boned texture than usual, which is enhanced by bright acids and a chalky, saline finish. It requires patience to realize all its potential.
