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. Pol Roger Brut Rèserve Non-Vintage, made from equal parts of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, is consistently one of the very best on the market, largely due to the high proportion of aged reserve wines in the blend. After four years ageing in our cellars, its style combines complexity, balance and distinction.
The Pol Roger Rosé Vintage is based on our Brut Vintage (60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay) to which we add, 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 our cellars before being released onto the market.
The wine is salmon-pink in colour with tints of orange, set off by fine bubbles.
Its initial nose offers a good aromatic expression dominated by red fruit, such as cherry and raspberry, along with rose petals, all leading to a beautiful freshness.
As it warms, notes of candied cherries and candy bring complexity to the ensemble.
The palate is in balance with the nose - both of equal intensity and richness.
The wine is fresh on entry to the palate with citrus notes of blood orange, then shows itself to be generous and enveloping as it reveals its red fruit aromas.
With a perfectly balanced palate, it offers good length.
This vintage’s character is supported by power and vinosity.
