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
Pol Roger Brut Reserve diplays a beautiful golden straw coloured hue, as well as abundant and fine bubbles. With a powerful and attractive nose, it first delivers aromas of fruit (pear, mango ...) and then releases light flavours of honeysuckle and white jasmine, lingering on vanilla and brioche notes. Behind a frank and dynamic attack, the wine encompasses a nice harmony and a pleasant freshness, whilst preserving some structure. On the palate, flavours of cooked fruit (quince jelly, apricot jam) happily mingle with fragrances of beeswax and acacia honey. The long-lasting aromas, composed of both fruity (candied orange peel, tangerine...) and spicy notes (cardamom, anis) is outstanding.

 Wine Advocate 90 points (Dec 1993)
A particulary good value.
 Wine Spectator 89 points (Oct 31 2004)
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

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.

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.
