Vintage 2015, Pol Roger, Epernay
Lively and fresh, the bouquet is full of pastry and dried notes, and an ethereal yet fleshy hint of rose petals. Evolving to reveal aromas of honey and apple jelly, once in the mouth it is round and elegant. The Brut Vintage 2015’s slight zesty quality sets off round and elegant notes of brioche.
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.
Champagne’s geographical location engenders unpredictable weather. For this reason, since their foundation in 1849 Pol Roger has observed the tradition of not releasing a vintage-dated Champagne unless the climatic conditions permit the production of grapes of outstanding ripeness. A vintage Champagne must, above all else, be a balanced Champagne. This balance depends on the right blend of healthy grapes, a good potential alcohol and correct acidity. The first criterion for declaring a vintage wine is its capacity to age. Devotees who have the patience to age their Champagnes are rewarded with a more complex and richer wine.
