Brut Reserve NV, Pol Roger, Epernay
A powerful and attractive nose delivering aromas of green apple and pear developing into notes of honeysuckle and brioche. On the palate the wine has a remarkable freshness, whilst preserving a robust structure. Flavours of quince jelly and apricot jam marry beautifully with acacia honey. Notes of candied orange peel and sweet cardamom spice are long-lasting.
For over 170 years Maison Pol Roger has been producing exceptional Champagne. Currently in the hands of the fifth and sixth generation, family and independence are at the heart of Champagne Pol Roger. The Pol Roger style is one of inimitable quality, purity of fruit and famously fine bubbles.
Once harvested, the grapes are immediately and delicately pressed. The alcoholic fermentation takes place at a low temperature (18°C) in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats, with each variety and the production of each village kept separate until final blending. All the wines go through a malolactic fermentation. After tasting, blending and bottling, the secondary fermentation and maturation takes place in the cool atmosphere of their cellars located 33 metres below street level for at least four years on the lees.
