Pol Roger Champagne Brut Reserve

Pol Roger Champagne Brut Reserve 750ML      
Sku: 14226

All the know-how of our firm is revealed in its ability to reproduce each year a blend which is consistent in style and in quality. Elegant and refined, the cuvee Brut Reserve is the champagne of all occasions. The Brut Reserve is a blend in equal parts of the three champenois grape varieties: pinot noir, pinot meunier and chardonnay from 30 different crus. 25% reserve wines are used to produce this cuvee: - The Pinot Noir (bringing structure, body and power) is mainly produced from some of the best crus of the Montagne de Reims. - The Pinot Meunier (ensuring freshness, roundness and fruitiness) is issued from several crus from the Vallee de la Marne and from the Epernay area. - The Chardonnay (adding its aromatic complexity, finesse, elegance and lightness) comes from Epernay and some of the best crus of the Cote des Blancs. After four years ageing in our cellars, its style combines complexity, balance and distinction.

Tasting notes
"Delicate and fresh, with lots of apple and dough flavors and crisp acidity. Very long and flavorful on the finish. 9,300 cases made."

Straw yellow and with a golden hue in color, the Pol Roger NV Reserve Brut displays a brilliant, perfectly ripe but also fresh, highly elegant and refined fruit aroma on the nose; think of cooked pip fruits like pears and apples, but also quince-confiture and yellow stone fruits, such as apricots and peaches intermixed with vanilla, brioche (pain aux raisins), some nutty flavors and also some white floral notes. On the palate, this medium-bodied Brut is as round (if not pretty sweet) and fruit-driven as it is delicate, pure and very elegant. The mousse is deliciously fine and leads this charming and perfectly balanced fizz to a long, aromatic, stunningly dry and slightly mineral, impressively long finish. This is extremely well done Champagne from equal parts of Pinot Noir, Meunier and Chardonnay sourced in 30 different crus. This Reserve includes 25% of reserve wines and was dosed with nine grams per liter.
A melange of toast, graphite, citrus and ginger aromas and flavors mark this dryish, balanced Champagne. Good intensity and length, underscored by a lively structure. Drink now. BS

Wine maker notes

Technical notes
Once harvested, the grapes are immediately and delicately pressed. The must undergoes a first debourbage (settling) at the press house and a second in our winery, a froid (at 6C) over a 24 hour period. The alcoholic fermentation takes place at a low temperature (18C) in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats, with each variety and the production of each village kept separate until final blending. All our wines go through a malolactic fermentation. After tasting, blending and bottling, the secondary fermentation (prise de mousse) and maturing take place in the cool atmosphere of our cellars located 33 metres below street level. Each bottle is given a traditional remuage (hand riddling) before disgorging and dosage, and the wines rest for a minimum of three months before being released.

Other text
"Pol Roger is the 'gentlemen's' Champagne, as Jean-Paul Kauffman wrote in 'Voyage en Champagne". It is not surprising, therefore, that Winston Churchill, and even the British royal family should have made it their favorite over the years. This refinement reflects a whole lifestyle. It is also a source of infinite pleasure. Pol Roger Champagne has a soul, created by the union of a family's spirit and the character of a vineyard."

Food pairing
The structure and vinosity, elegance and freshness, captured in this Brut Reserve offer an optimum balance between power and finesse, making it a remarkable wine to be served as an aperitif, or to accompany a whole meal.
