Pol Roger Brut Vintage 2002 Champagne 75cl
Intense gold with persistent fine mousse. The nose opens with floral rose notes and warms to toasted brioche. The mouth is full and fresh with spicy floral hints (wallflower or nasturtium), underpinned with candied yellow fruit. The finish is long and dry.
Typically this has the power to match fine dining and would work well with lobster or other crustaceans as well as rich or pungent or spicy dishes.
Vintage champagne is by definition the wine of a single year and it must rely on the success of that harvest alone. Vintage champagne is therefore produced only when all the necessary components of climate, grape quality and ripeness at harvest come together for the winemaker to produce a wine of optimum intensity, structure and balance. The blend is 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay, with a dosage of 8 g/l.
