Pol Roger Brut Reserve NV Champagne Demi Bottle 37.5cl 12.5% ABV
Pol Roger Brut Reserve NV Champagne Demi Bottle
A delightful baby (demi) bottle of The Pol Roger Brut Reserve,
Winston Churchill's favourite house produces a classically styled Champagne of considerable class. Floral and soft in extreme youth, the Pinot Noir soon reveals itself in a firm yet creamy structure, with plenty of zesty fruit and true depth. Beautifully presented, it makes an ideal gift or special occasion champagne.
On the nose, the champagne is dominated by white flowers, green apple, brioche and a trace of minerality. On the palate there are notes of stone fruits, a certain nuttiness and a hint of honey supporting the freshness of the acidity.
Pol Roger Brut Reserve Non-Vintage Champagne is the definitive house-style, composed from 30 still base wines drawn from at least two vintages, and the three varieties of Champagne, 33% Pinot Noir, 34% Chardonnay and 33% Pinot Meunier.
The Pinot Noir comes from the villages of the Montagne de Reims and contributes body and character; the Chardonnay comes from Epernay itself and the Côte des Blancs and provides lightness and elegance; the Pinot Meunier comes from the Vallee de la Marne. UK stock receives an additional 6 months post-disgorgement ageing so it is ready to drink upon release but cellaring for a few years will reveal greater depths.
